1 How good a thing it is,
how pleasant to behold,
when all God's people live at one,
the law of love uphold!

2 As perfume, by its scent,
breathes fragrance all around,
so life itself will sweeter be
where unity is found.

3 And like refreshing dew
that falls upon the hills,
true union sheds its gentle grace,
and deeper love instils.

4 God grants the choicest gifts
to those who live in peace;
to them such blessings shall abound
and evermore increase.

After Psalm 133, James Edward Seddon (1915 - 1983)
