Representative Text

Refrain:
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]
