Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

Welcome, welcome, welcome,
We welcome you, dear friends,
In this our opening lay;
Welcome, welcome, welcome,
Welcome here this festal day.

1 Many are the sorrows, many are the tears,
Many are the joys, and many are the fears
That have crossed our pathway since we last did meet,
But we've come again, our kindred and our friends to greet. [Refrain]

2 Many are the conflicts, many are the snares,
Many are the trials, and many are the cares
That we've borne through Jesus, since we last did meet,
But we're here again, our brethren and our friends to greet. [Refrain]

3 Many are the pleasures that we here shall share,
Many are the treasures we must homeward bear,
That we may be true till we the Master meet,
When we'll come again, our loved ones and our friends to greet. [Refrain]
