How sweet, how heav'nly is the sight Lyrics
How sweet, how heav'nly is the sight,
When those who love the Lord
In one another's peace delight,
And so fulfill His Word:
When each can feel his brother's sigh,
And with him bear a part;
When sorrow flows from eye to eye,
And joy from heart to heart;
When, free from envy, scorn and pride,
Our wishes all above,
Each can his brother's failings hide,
And show a brother's love;
When love, in one delightful stream,
Through every bosom flows;
When union sweet, and dear esteem,
In every action glows.
Love is the golden chain that binds;
The saints Thy grace thus prove.
And he is glory's heir that finds
His bosom glow with love.
