In love’s fellowship we meet you
Here the Gospel to proclaim,
And with song of joy we greet you
In the Savior’s holy name.


Welcome, welcome,
Glad welcome we sing,
Join us in praising
Our Savior and king.

Jesus walking close beside you,
While the hours are going by,
Will with holy counsels guide you,
And with grace your needs supply.


He will ne’er forsake nor leave you,
When by sin you grieve Him sore,
But will graciously receive you,
And your wandering heart restore.


All through life may peace attend you,
Giving calm and sweet repose,
And the powers of Heav’n defend you,
From unseen and open foes.
