GATHERED AS ONE

VERSE 1 Many faces the young and the old, gathered as one in our God.

               Throughout history the stories retold, gathered as one in our God.

CHORUS

Like those come before us we listen and learn

We remember the promise and await your return

So without hesitation a new generation proclaims the salvation of God.

Gathered as one in Jesus your son lifting our voices in praise

We know and believe and long to receive

The bread that is strength for our days gathered as one

 

VERSE 2 Many pilgrims sharing at feast, gathered as one in our God

               All are welcome the greatest and least, gathered as one in our God CHORUS

 

VERSE 3 Many voices raised up in song, gathered as one in our God

               In one family where all can belong, gathered as one in our God CHORUS

 

 

OFFERTORY: Open My Eyes #569

Open my eyes, Lord. Help me to see your face. Open my eyes, Lord. Help me to see.
Open my ears, Lord. Help me to hear your voice. Open my ears, Lord. Help me to hear. 

CHORUS:
And the last shall be first and our eyes are opened, and we’ll hear like never before.
And we’ll speak in new ways, and we’ll see God’s face in places we’ve never known. 
Open my heart, Lord. Help me to love like you. Open my heart, Lord. Help me to love. CHORUS

 

COMMUNION 1: Without seeing you #842

Without seeing you we love you. Without touching you we embrace.
Without knowing you we follow. Without seeing you we believe.

We return to you deep within, leave the past to the dust.
Turn to you with tears and fasting, You are ready to forgive. (Refrain)

The sparrow will find a home near to you oh God.
How happy we who dwell with you, for ever in your house. (Refrain)

For ever we sing to you of your goodness, O God; 
proclaiming to all the world of your faithfulness and love. (Refrain)

For you are our shepherd there is nothing that we need.
In green pastures we will find our way, in waters of peace. (Refrain)

You are the voice of the living God, calling us now to live in your love; 
to be children of God once again!

1. Praise for the night that shines through the night, from darkness to light, from death to new life, 
and praise to the morning that brings forth the sun, to open our eyes to the Lord! (2X)

God's love over flowing our hearts know the joy to be daughters and sons of the Lord! (2X)

of praise to creation; all heaven and earth, come sing of Glory of God! (2X)
