"Come in, thou blessed of the Lord" - Receiving a Member
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Receiving a Member.

"And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the Lord."
(Genesis 24,31)

1. "Come in, thou blessed of the Lord,"
  enter in Jesu's precious name;
we welcome thee with one accord,
  and trust the Saviour does the same.

2. Thy name, 'tis hoped, already stands
  marked in the book of life above;
and now to thine we join our hands,
  in token of fraternal love.

3. Those joys which earth cannot afford,
  we'll seek in fellowship to prove;
joined in one spirit to our Lord,
  together bound by mutual love.

4. And while we pass this vale of tears,
  we'll make our joys and sorrows known;
we'll share each other's hopes and fears,
  and count a brother's case our own.

5. Once more our welcome we repeat,
  receive assurance of our love;
and may we all together meet
  around the throne of God above!

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 507.
