1 Welcome among Thy flock of grace
With joyful acclamation,
Thou, Whom our Shepherd we confess!
Come, feed Thy congregation.
We own the doctrine of Thy cross
To be our sole foundation;
Accept from every one of us

And sacrament us feedest,
What shall we say? Lost in amaze,
Our hearts bow down before Thee;
For none sufficiently can praise,
Love, honor, or adore Thee.

3 Lord Jesus, for our call of grace,
To praise Thy Name in fellowship
We humbly meet before Thy face
And in Thy presence love-feast keep.
Shed in our hearts Thy love abroad,
Thy spirit’s unction now impart;
Grant we may all, O Lamb of God,
In Thee be truly one in heart.
