1 Brethren in Christ, and well-beloved,
To Jesus and His servants dear,
Enter and show yourselves approved;
Enter, and find that God is here.
2 Welcome from earth: lo, the right hand
Of fellowship to you we give!
With open hearts and hands we stand,
And you in Jesu’s name receive.
3 Say, are your hearts resolved as ours?
Then let them burn with sacred love;
Then let them taste the heavenly powers,
Partakers of the joys above.
4 Jesu, attend, Thyself reveal!
Are we not met in Thy great name?
Thee in the midst we wait to feel,
We wait to catch the spreading flame.
5 Thou God that answerest by fire,
The Spirit of burning now impart;
And let the flames of pure desire
Rise from the altar of our heart.
6 Truly our fellowship below
With Thee and with the Father is;
In Thee eternal life we know,
And Heaven’s unutterable bliss.
7 In part we only know Thee here,
But wait Thy coming from above;
And we shall then behold Thee near,
And we shall all be lost in love.
