Welcome Welcome Blessed Servant

Welcome, welcome, blessed servant,
Messenger of Jesus’ grace!
O how beautiful the feet of
Him that brings good news of peace!
Welcome herald,
Priest of God, thy people’s joy.

Saviour, bless his message to us,
Give us hearts to hear thy word
Speaking pardon, dearly purchas’d
By the sufferings of our Lord;
O reveal it,
To our poor and helpless souls.

Give reward of grace and glory
To thy faithful labourer dear,
Let the incense of our hearts be
Offer’d up in faith and prayer.
Bless, O bless him,
Now, henceforth, for evermore!
