997. Come in, Thou Blessèd of the Lord

1. Come in, thou blessèd of the Lord,
Stranger nor foe art thou;
We welcome thee with warm accord,
Our friend, our brother, now.

2. The hand of fellowship, the heart
Of love, we offer thee;
Leaving the world, thou dost but part
From lies and vanity.

3. Come with us; we will do thee good
As God to us hath done;
Stand but in Him, as those have stood
Whose faith the victory won.

4. And when, by turns, we pass away,
As star by star grows dim,
May each, translated into day,
Be lost and found in Him.
