Welcome to Another Day

Full Text

1 Welcome to another day!
Night is blinded.
"Welcome," let creation say;
darkness ended.
Comes the sunshine after dew,
time for labour;
time to love my God anew
and my neighbour.

2 Welcome to the day of prayer
with God's people
welcome is the joy we share
at this table.
Bread and wine from heaven fall:
come, receive it
that the Christ may reign in all
who believe it.

3 Welcome is the peace that's given,
sure for ever;
welcome is the hope of heaven
when life's over.
As we work and as we pray,
trust God's story:
come then, as the dawning day
heralds glory!
