Welcome Welcome Gladly Welcome


Welcome, welcome, gladly welcome,
To the children’s Jubilee,
Here we meet, with joy to greet you,
Happy meeting may it be;
May our hearts be overflowing,
Full of joyous melody;
Each to each our love is showing,
‘Tis the children’s Jubilee.

Refrain:
Welcome, welcome, welcome, yes, welcome,
Happy welcome to all, yes, to all,
Welcome, welcome, welcome, yes, welcome,
Happy welcome to all, yes, to all.

Welcome, welcome, sweetly welcome!
Songs of joy and beams of light,
Gild the golden ties of friendship,
Blending all our hearts to-night;
Sweetly may the strains of music,
Fill our minds with thoughts sublime,
Lift us higher, make us purer,
All our hearts in love combine. [Refrain]

Welcome! welcome! singing welcome!
Thanks we raise, O Lord, to Thee!
Thou hast kindly, gently, led us,
Brought us to our Jubilee.
When we come to Jordan’s river,
Gazing on the other shore,
May we find a hearty welcome,
Welcome where we’ll part no more. [Refrain]
