Whose cheerful hearts in bands unite

Of harmony and love ! 2 What streams of bliss from CHRIST, the spring,

Descend on every soul;
And heavenly peace, with balmy wing,

Shades and revives the whole.
3 'Tis pleasant as the morning dews

That fall on Zion's hill,
Where God his mildest glory shows,

And makes his grace distil.

Hymn 16. S. M.
D LEST be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds

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.

Our courage by the way ;
While each in expectation lives,

And longs to see the day. 8 From sorrow, toil, and pain,

And sin we shall be free;
And perfect love and friendship reign

Through all eternity.

Hymn 17. S. M.
Tow beauteous are their feet

Who stand on Zion's hill!''
That bring salvation on their tongues,

And words of peace reveal ! 2 How charming is their voice!

So sweet the tidings are !
“ Zion, behold thy Saviour King

He reigns and triumphs here!"
How happy are our ears,

That hear the joyful sound,
Which kings and prophets waited for,

And sought but never found ! 4 How blessed are our eyes,

That see this heavenly light;
