1 How sweet and heavenly is the sight
When those who love the Lord
In one another's peace delight,
And so fulfill his word!
2 Oh! may we feel each brother's sigh,
And with him bear a part;
May sorrows flow from eye to eye,
And joy from heart to heart.
3 Let love, in one delightful stream,
Through every bosom flow,
Let union sweet and dear esteem
In every action glow.
4 Love is the golden chain that binds
The happy souls above;
And he's an heir of heaven who finds
His bosom glow with love.
Temple Melodies, 1851
