WELCOME TO THE FAMILY

Jim Brady, Barry Weeks, & Tony Woods

The tablecloths are red and white,
The tea is sweet and cold
The lines are long for that good fried chicken
And green bean casserole
Old folks all are fanning,
The young kids are at play
The preacher asks the blessing,
It’s a scene that seems to say

Welcome to the family
You can feel at home here
There’s a lot of love
That goes beyond these years
There’s nothing like the fellowship
Of those who love the Lord
So welcome to the family,
There’s always room for more

We all feel like nappin’
On a Sunday afternoon
But we’ll stick around for a while
To sing some good ole gospel tunes
It doesn’t matter if the voices and
The songs are new or old
There’s something in the harmony
That’s speaking to my soul.

Welcome to the family
You can feel at home here
There’s a lot of love
That goes beyond these years
There’s nothing like the fellowship
Of those who love the Lord
So welcome to the family,
There’s always room for more

When I count my blessings, it’s easy to see
My brothers and sisters that mean so much to me

I think about the many times
They’ve kept me in their prayers
And the countless ways
They’ve always shown me that they care
And I know they’ll still walk with me
No matter what’s ahead
Yes, so much more than just their words
Their lives have always said

Welcome to the family
You can feel at home here
There’s a lot of love
That goes beyond these years
There’s nothing like the fellowship
Of those who love the Lord
So welcome to the family,
There’s always room for more
