If You Come Cheerily

If you come cheerily,

Here shall be jest for you;

If you come wearily,

Here shall be rest for you.

If you come borrowing,

Gladly we'll loan to you;

If you come sorrowing,

Love shall be shown to you.

Under our thatch, friend,

Place shall abide for you,

Touch but the latch, friend,

The door will swing wide for you.
