Blest Be the Tie That Binds 

Lyrics ~ John Fawcett, 1740-1817
Music ~ Hans G. Naegell, 1773-1836 

Stanza 1:

Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship of kindred minds

Is like to that above.



Stanza 2:

Before our Father's throne

We pour our ardent prayers;

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

Our comforts and our cares.



Stanza 3:

We share our mutualwoes,

Our mutual burdens bear;

And often for each other flows

The sympathizing tear.



Stanza 4:

When we asunder part,

It gives us inward pain;

But we shall still be joined in heart,

And hope to meet again.
