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

1 Welcome, welcome, gladly welcome,
To the children’s Jubilee,
Here we meet, with joy to greet you,
Happy meeting may it be;
May our hearts be overflowing,
Full of joyous melody;
Each to each our love is showing,
‘Tis the children’s Jubilee.

Welcome, welcome, welcome, yes, welcome,
Happy welcome to all, yes, to all,
Welcome, welcome, welcome, yes, welcome,
Happy welcome to all, yes, to all.

2 Welcome, welcome, sweetly welcome!
Songs of joy and beams of light,
Gild the golden ties of friendship,
Blending all our hearts to-night;
Sweetly may the strains of music,
Fill our minds with thoughts sublime,
Lift us higher, make us purer,
All our hearts in love combine. [Refrain]

3 Welcome! welcome! singing welcome!
Thanks we raise, O Lord, to Thee!
Thou hast kindly, gently, led us,
Brought us to our Jubilee.
When we come to Jordan’s river,
Gazing on the other shore,
May we find a hearty welcome,
Welcome where we’ll part no more. [Refrain]
