Brother in Christ, and well beloved

Brother in Christ, and well beloved

Published in 30 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Brother in Christ, and well-belov'd,
To Jesus and his servants dear,
Enter, and show thyself approv'd;
Enter, and find that God is here.

2 Welcome from earth!--lo, the right hand
Of fellowship to thee we give!
With open arms and hearts we stand,
And thee in Jesus' name receive.

3 Say, is thy heart resolv'd as ours?
Then let it burn with sacred love;
Then let it taste the heavenly powers,
Partaker of the joys above.

4 Jesus, 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 Truly our fellowship below
With thee, and with the Father is;
In thee eternal life we know,
And heaven's unutterable bliss.

6 In part we only know thee here,
But wait thy coming from above;
And we shall then behold thee near,
And then shall all be lost in love.
