How sweet, how heavenly is the sight,
When those who love the Lord
In one another's peace delight,
And so fulfill His word;
When, free from envy, scorn, and pride,
Our wishes all above,
Each can his brother's failings hide,
And show a brother's love.
Let love, in one delightful stream,
Through every bosom flow;
And union sweet, and dear esteem
In every action glow.
Love is the golden chain that binds
The hearts that faithful prove;
And he's an heir of heaven who finds
His bosom glow with love.
