Psalm 133

Dewey Westra, 1931; rev.

  1. Behold, how good, how pleasant is the union
    When brothers live together in communion!
    ‘Tis like the oil on Aaron’s head
    That, running down, upon his beard does spread,
    The oil that, flowing down his priestly dress,
    Anoints him unto holiness.
  2. ‘Tis as the dew on Hermon’s brow descending,
    The dew that falls where Zion’s slopes are bending,
    And makes their vintage overflow.
    So they who dwell in peace no want shall know,
    For there the LORD their God His blessing sends
    And grants the life that never ends.
