447 (C.M.) Joseph Swain

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 ev'ry bosom flows,

And union sweet, and dear esteem

In every action glows!

Love is the golden chain that binds

The happy souls above;

And he's an heir of heav'n that finds

His bosom glow with love.
