Refrain:    Mercy and truth are met together,

 

righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

1    Behold how good and pleasant it is  

to dwell together in unity.

2    It is like the precious oil upon the head,  

running down upon the beard,

3    Even on Aaron’s beard,  

running down upon the collar of his clothing.

4    It is like the dew of Hermon  

running down upon the hills of Zion.

5    For there the Lord has promised his blessing:  

even life for evermore.

 

Refrain:    Mercy and truth are met together,

 

righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

Grant to your people, good Lord,

the spirit of unity,

that they may dwell together in your love,

and so bear to the world

the ointment of your healing and the

    dew of your blessing;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
