670. 'Tis a Pleasant Thing to See

1 ‘Tis a pleasant thing to see
brothers in the Lord agree,
sisters of a God of love
live as they shall live above,
acting each a Christian part,
one in word and one in heart.

2 Where divine affection lives,
there the Lord his blessing gives;
there his will on earth is done;
there his heav'n is half begun.
Great Example from above,
teach us all like you to love.
