Words: John Fawcett, 1782 Music: Johann G. Nägeli; arranged by Lowell Mason, 1845 From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk BLEST BE THE TIE THAT BINDS (F) Blest be the (C7) tie that (F) binds Our (Bb) hearts in Chris(F)tian (C) love; The (C7) fellow(F)ship of (C7) kindred (F) minds (Bb) Is (F) like (Bb) to (F) that (C7) ab(F)ove. Before our Father's throne We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one Our comforts and our cares. We share each other's 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.Home
