Our mutual burdens bear; And ofteu for each other flows
The sympathizing tear. 4 When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain,
And hope to meet again. 5 This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
And longs to see the day. 6 From sorrow, toil, and pain,
And sin, we shall be free;
Through all eternity.

Till thou our wants relieve: Write forgiveness on our heart,
And all thine image give :
Still our souls shall cry to thee,
Till perfected in holiness,

Till streams of blood each other meet :
Ard mock the pangs in which he died.
