Unity with Understanding

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon… Aaron's beard… As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore" (Psalm 133:1-3).  "My son, be wise, and make My heart glad… Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks" (Proverbs 27:11,23).  "Give an account of thy stewardship" (Luke 16:2).

The Lord commands us each to view
These similes of unity
In Aaron and in heaven's dew
To understand our harmony.   

In Aaron is a type of Christ,
Our great High Priest whom God appointed,
Who for our sakes was sacrificed
As God's unblemished Lamb anointed. 

The dew descending on each mountain,
In Hermon's north and Zion's south,  
Portrays God's blessing like a fountain
That we may praise Him with one mouth. 

O Lord, as dew upon each mount  
Brought blessings that You were commanding,
By grace, we'd give a glad account
For unity with understanding.
