HOW blest the sacred tie that binds

In sweet communion kindred minds!

How glad the heavenly course they run,

Whose hearts, whose faith, whose hopes are one!

To each the soul of each how dear!

What tender love! what holy fear!

How does the generous flame within 

Refine from earth and cleanse from sin

Nor shall the glorious flame expire,

When dimly burns frail nature's fire:

Then shall they meet in realms above,

And celebrate their Saviour's love.
