Skype the Tie That Binds

I love Skype.  Tonight I made my first Skype call tonight to the young man who lives in a dorm and doesn't want to be blogged about.  This new empty nester feels better now that she's seen her fledgling.  I find myself wanting to sing, and sing loudly, "Blest Be The Tie That Binds:" but I'll just supply the lyrics:

Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.

Before our Father’s throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.

We share each other’s woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.

This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.

From sorrow, toil and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign

Through all eternity.
