WE WELCOME YOU, THE FRIENDS OF GRACE††††††††††
(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear† #49† CM)
We welcome you, the friends of grace,
The chosen of the Lord.
Let sinners saved by sovíreign grace
Worship with one accord.
As Godís servants today proclaim
The riches of His grace,
As they extol our Saviorís name,
Let us adore and praise.
O weary, guilty, ruined souls,
You who know not our God,
We pray that God will make you whole
Through Jesusí precious blood.
O Holy Spirit, condescend
To make our Savior known.
Through the preached Word be pleased to send
Your grace and power down.
Anoint Your servantsí lips, we pray,
To preach the Word of grace,
Anoint our ears to hear today,
With glory fill this place!
