THE LORD'S SUPPER
|170||Blest Be the Tie That Binds|
|(DENNIS. S. M.)|
|John Fawcett, 1772||Arranged from Hans G. Nageli
By Lowell Mason, 1845
Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christan love:
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above
Be - fore our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims, are one,
Our comforts and our cares.
We share our mutal woes;
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart
And hope to meet again.
From sorrow toil, and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign
|171||Bread of the World|
|Reginald Heber, 1826||John S. B. Hodges, 1869|
Bread of the world, in mercy broken
Wine of the the soul in mercy shed,
By whom the words of lie were spoken,
And in whose death are sins are dead;
Look on the heart by sorrow broken,
Look on the tears by sinners shed.
And be thy feast to us the token
That by thy grace our souls are fed.
