Psalm 133

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Behold, how good a thing it is,
       and how becoming well,
     Together such as brethren are
       in unity to dwell!
2    Like precious ointment on the head,
       that down the beard did flow,
     Ev'n Aaron's beard, and to the skirts,*
       did of his garments go.

3    As Hermon's dew, the dew that doth
       on Sion' hills descend:
     For there the blessing God commands,
       life that shall never end.
