Welcome Friends, right gladly
So bright the love you bring,
For when I 'm feeling sadly
All alone, you put the spring
Back in my step, your laughter
Is the tonic that I need,
A sense of ever after
Growing from love's wondrous seed,
Welcome Friends, warm greeting
Ever caring, ever near,
So blessed is our meeting
And our sharing happy cheer.
You bring a sense of knowing
That has banished care's dark night ,
Thrice welcome Friends, Love's glowing
Leading safely to His Light!
though time itself will clearly show
The way that, long ago, we chose to go
Towards the light of His dear love, I know
That faith's strong tree will ever stronger grow.
And, whiles, we find the journey daunting, still
One day we'll stand upon a splendid hill
And looking back will joyfully agree:
"What came to pass was always meant to be!"
There's nothing like a good old hug
To make your feathers glisten
A friend to share the moments with
To talk with and to listen
So be assured, this Friend
Who loves your presence and society
Restrains his hugs (in this localle)
Preserving, thus propriety.
Yet, all this said, you know he cares
And always will, no matter,
With dulcet tones, this poet and clown,
Loves you no matter!
To be a friend a man should go more than halfway in his contacts with his fellow men; he should greet others first and not wait to be greeted; he should radiate a spirit of overflowing good will.
