James Montgomery, 1825
We bid thee welcome in the name|
Of Jesus, our exalted Head.
Come as a servant, - so He came,
And we receive thee in His stead.
2. Come as a shepherd; guard and keep
3. Come as a watchman; take thy stand
4. Come as an angel - hence to guide|
A band of pilgrims on their way,
That softly walking at thy side,
We fail not, faint not, turn nor stray.
5. Come as a teacher sent from God,
6. Come as a messenger of peace,
