1 When our Saviour in his glory
With the angel host shall come,
When in clouds from heaven descending
He shall call his children home,
When before him shall be gathered
All the nations far and near,
What a shout of joy will greet him,
When the welcome words we hear:

Come, ye blessed of my Father,
Come, ye blessed of my Father,
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you
From the foundation of the word.

2 To the well of living water
If the thirsty we have led,
If the stranger we have sheltered,
And the hungry we have fed,
If a weary, fainting brother
We have tried to help and cheer,
Oh, the rest that we shall enter,
When the welcome words we hear: [Refrain]

3 If we give our lives to Jesus
And delight to do his will,
If we follow out his teaching,
And his great commands fulfil,
If our light is seen by others,
Like the noonday bright and clear,
What a joyful, joyful meeting,
When the welcome words we hear: [Refrain]
