Lyrics

Vs. 1&3
How very go,Od and pleasant,
How very go,Od to see,

When kindred live together,
together in unity.

It is like the dew of Hermon,
Which falls upon the hills,

For there the Lord gives blessing,
And there our spirit fills.


Vs. 2
For peace shall come upon you,
Annointing ev'ry race,

The precious oil of Aaron,
The precious gift of grace.

The po,Or shall be uplifted,
The scornful be made low,

The Lord ordains his blessing,
And life, forever more.
