1 Brethren, beloved for Jesu's sake,
A hearty welcome here receive;
May we together now partake
The joys which he alone can give!

We only wish to speak of him,
And tell the wonders of his grace.

4 We'll talk of all he did and said,

The path he marked for us to tread,
And how he triumphs now above.

5 Thus as the moments pass away,
We'll love, and wonder, and adore;
Then hasten on the glorious day,
When we shall meet to part no more.
