Romany Publishing Co.Public Domain1. Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred minds Is like to that above.2. Before our Father’s throne, We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts, and our cares.3. We share our mutual woes, Our mutual burdens bear; And often for each other flows The sympathizing tear.4. When we asunder part, It gives us inward pain; But we shall still be joined in heart, And hope to meet again.
