Song 124

Receive Them With Hospitality

Receive Them With Hospitality

(Acts 17:7)

1. Jehovah shows sincere hospitality.

He cares for all without partiality.

He gives both rain and sun,

withholding these from none;

He fills our hearts with food and good cheer.

Whenever we show favor to lowly ones,

We imitate our God as beloved sons.

Our Father will repay the goodness we display,

Our kindness that is truly sincere.

2. We never know the good that may come about

When we see those in need and we help them out.

Though strangers they may be, in hospitality,

We lend a hand to care for their needs.

Like Lydia of old, we say: ‘Be my guest.’

When they come to our home,

they find peace and rest.

Our Father is aware of all those ev’rywhere,

Who imitate his merciful deeds.
