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.

1 Welcome! thrice welcome!
Ye loyal host of God,
Welcome! thrice welcome!
From near and from abroad;
Tho' changing years pass swiftly by,
Our cause is still the same,
And thus we gladly greet you in
Our Master's conq'ring Name.

Welcome! thrice welcome
to homes and hearts and love;
Welcome! thrice welcome!
And blessings from above.

2 Welcome! thrice welcome!
Believers in the Lord;
Welcome! thrice welcome!
Upholders of His word;
We meet our Saviour's name to praise,
To learn what He requires,
And by His Spirit's help resolve
To follow His desires. [Chorus]

3 Welcome! thrice welcome!
Be steadfast in the right,
Welcome! thrice welcome!
Till faith is lost in sight;
And when our battles all are won
We'll join the blessed throng,
Then God will welcome us and we
Will hear heav'ns welcome song. [Chorus]
