Welcome Welcome O Redeemer


Welcome, welcome, O Redeemer,
Welcome to this heart of mine.
Lord, I make a full surrender,
Every power and thought be Thine;
Thine entirely, Thine entirely,
Through eternal ages Thine;
Thine entirely, Thine entirely,
Through eternal ages Thine.

Oh, I love Thee, precious Jesus,
And I know that Thou art mine;
All my heart I give Thee, Jesus,
And I know Thou mak’st it Thine.
Take my warmest, best affections,
Take my mem’ry, mind and will,
And with all Thy loving Spirit
All my emptied nature fill.

Vain the world, its pleasures boasting;
Vain the charms of life to me;
Gold is dross, and riches worthless,
If they turn my heart from Thee.
Nearer, dearer than a brother,
Source and centre of my bliss;
All of joy and all of sorrow,
Find their end in knowing this.

Known to all to be Thy mansion,
Earth and hell shall disappear;
Or in vain attempt possession,
When they find the Lord is there.
Shout, ye angels! shout, ye angels!
Shout, O saints, the Lord is here;
Shout, ye angels! shout, ye angels!
Shout, O saints, the Lord is here.
