Blest Be The Tie That Binds

Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.

Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.

When for a while we part
This thought will soothe our pain
That we shall still be joined in heart
And hope to meet again.

From sorrow, toil and pain
And sin we shall be free
And perfect love and friendship reign
Through all eternity.
