604R How Good and Pleasant

Paraphrase of Psalm 133.

RAMOTH (8.8.6.8.8.6.)

1. How good and pleas-ant is the sight
when all souls make it a de-light
to dwell in un-i-ty;
O Love is an a-noin-ting oil
that con-se-crates our dai-ly toil
in sweet-est a-mi-ty.

2. O Love in peace and joy di-stills,
as down the slopes of Her-mon’s hills
re-fresh-ing dew des-cends;
O God pro-vides a bless-ing there,
so all shall walk in Truth and share
in life that nev-er ends.

3. How good and pleas-ant is the sight
when all souls make it a de-light
to dwell in un-i-ty;
O now des-cends the spir-it's care,
so all shall in Love's mer-cy share
true life and am-i-ty.
