663. C. M. Montgomery. A Welcome to Fellowship.
1 Approach thou blessed 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 The cup of blessing which we bless,
The heavenly bread we break,
Our Saviour's blood and righteousness, --
Freely with us partake.
