1 Once more with joy and gladness
Our grateful songs we sing!
These happy hours we welcome,
With all the joy they bring;
Dear mem’ries sweetly linger
Of other times and days,
And ev’ry word of greeting
Some tender thought conveys.

Refrain:
We come, we come,
Once more we gladly meet,
We come, we come,
Our joyful songs repeat;
We come, we come,
With heart, and soul, and voice,
To sing the praise of Christ our King,
To worship and rejoice.

2 The loving Friend above us
Our ways hath gently led,
And with his smile upon us
The golden year hath sped;
To him who thus so kindly
Hath helped us ev’ry day,
We offer our devotion,
And grateful homage pay. [Refrain]

3 Still lead us, heavenly Father,
And fill us with thy love,
Till we at last shall gather
In thy blest home above;
And now, with glad rejoicing,
The songs we love we’ll sing,
And happy notes of greeting
Shall with its echo ring. [Refrain]
