Hymn/Song Information

We bid thee welcome in the name Of Jesus




We bid thee welcome in the name
Of Jesus, our exalted Head.
Come as a servant, - so He came,
And we receive thee in His stead.


Come as a shepherd; guard and keep
This fold from hell and world and sin;
Nourish the lambs and feed the sheep;
The wounded heal, the lost bring in.


Come as a watchman; take thy stand
Upon the tower amidst the sky,
And when the sword comes on the land,
Call us to fight or warn to fly.


Come as an angel - hence to guide
A band of pilgrims on their way,
That softly walking at thy side,
We fail not, faint not, turn nor stray.


Come as a teacher sent from God,
Charged His whole counsel to declare.
Lift o'er our ranks the prophet's rod
While we uphold thy hands with prayer.


Come as a messenger of peace,
Filled with the Spirit, fired with love.
Live to behold our large increase
And die to meet us all above.


---Alternative verses---


Come as an angel - hence to guide
A band of pilgrims on their way,
That safely walking at thy side,
We fail not, faint not, turn nor stray.
