How blest the sacred tie that binds

Full Text

1 How blest the sacred tie that binds
In union sweet according minds!
How swift the heav’nly course they run,
Whose hearts, and faith, and hopes are one!

2 To each the soul of each how dear!
What jealous love, what holy fear!
How doth the generous flame within
Refine from earth and cleanse from sin!

3 Their streaming eyes together flow,
For human guilt and mortal woe;
Their ardent pray’r united rise
Like mingling flames in sacrifice.

4 Nor shall the glowing flame expire
‘Mid nature’s drooping, sick’ning fire;
Soon shall they meet in realms above,
A heaven of joy, because of love.
