Fountain repair

I have a concrete fountain in which the basin has has broken in two pieces. It's a nice clean break. the halves weigh about 40 lbs each and are about 2 inches thick. I can lay one half on the other for a firm fit.

Question: what do I use to bond the two halves. Regular mortar mix? concrete? I was wondering about those caulking tubes for mortar repair? Is the mortar in them the same as the stuff in the bags. The bags weigh about the same as I do! Is there another product that might be better?

Appearance isn't an issue.

Thanks for any recommendations. These forums have saved been a god send and also saved me a lot of dollars and 'mistakes'.

This may sound stupid, but I have repaired many things (including a jutting stone that supports a fireplace mantle) with Gorilla Glue. It is an incredibly strong glue that can bond about anything. You can buy it at any hardware store, home center, and probably even Wal-Mart, etc. It even claims to bond concrete and is 100% waterproof! Good luck!
