Representative Text

1 Oh! beautiful windows, that welcome the sun;
The glory and pomp of the day has begun.
Oh! beautiful friendship, so rich and so sweet,
That brings us the ones we are happy to greet.

Welcome, thrice welcome,
Oh! glorious day;
Welcome, most welcome,
Oh! friendship, thy stay;
Ever bring near to us
Those who are dear to us,
Ever and always illumine our way.

2 Oh! beautiful curtains, as misty as lace,
That hid in the morning the dawn’s rosy face.
Oh! beautiful hand, tho’ unseen it was fair,
That parted those curtains as lightly as air. [Refrain]

3 Oh! beautiful love, that the Father has sent
With numberless blessings, He kindly has lent.
Oh! beautiful home, with the One we adore,
When gathered above we will praise Him the more. [Refrain]
