Verse 1
Blest be the dear uniting love,
That will not let us part;
Our bodies may far off remove,
We still are one in heart.

Verse 2
Joined in one spirit to our Head,
Where He appoints we go;
And still in Jesu's footsteps tread,
And show His praise below.

Verse 3
O may we ever walk in Him,
And nothing know beside;
Nothing desire, nothing esteem,
But Jesus crucified!

Verse 4
Closer and closer let us cleave
To His beloved embrace;
Expect His fullness to receive
And grace to answer grace.
