Stirring arrangement of How Beautiful the Sight,
perfect for offertory or other special service
1. How beautiful the sight
Of brethren who agree
In friendship to unite,
And bonds of charity;
‘Tis like the precious ointment, shed
O’er all hi robes, from Aaron’s head.
2. ‘Tis like the dew that fills
The cups of Hermon’s flow’rs;
Or Zion’s fruitful hill,
Bright with the drops of show’rs,
When mingling odors breathe around,
And glory rests on all the ground.
3. For there the Lord commands
Blessings, a boundless store,
From His unsparing hands,
Yea, life forevermore:
Thrice happy they who meet above
To spend eternity in love!
