Gather (Gather from the East)

road stretching from the desert towards the mountains - which people can use to 1 Gather from the East, gather from the West, Gather from the highways too. Gather from the North, gather from the South, Gather when the night is noon. Chorus: And we’ll gather and we shall reap, and no longer in sadness we’ll weep. And we’ll gather, and we shall reap, resting, rising, calling, guiding, O Lord. 2. Gather all the needy, gather all in pain Gather all who cry in vain. Gather all the thirsty, gather all the poor, Gather all in Jesus’ name. 3. Gather all forgotten, gather all forlorn. Gather all who weep and mourn. Gather all the silent, gather all who sing, Gather all the hearts reborn.
This gathering hymn was written by by Irish Roman Catholic priest and singer-songwriter Liam Lawton

It was published originally in the Light the Fire collection, released in 1995 by Veritas Publications.

At the time of writing. Light the Fire (CD, people's edition and accompaniment edition) are available from Amazon UK/IrelandAmazon.comVeritas and SheetMusicPlus - and these are the only known sources of sheet music for it.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 Gather from the East, gather from the West,
Gather from the highways too.
Gather from the North, gather from the South,
Gather when the night is noon.

Chorus:
And we’ll gather and we shall reap,
and no longer in sadness we’ll weep.
And we’ll gather, and we shall reap,
resting, rising, calling, guiding, O Lord.

2. Gather all the needy, gather all in pain
Gather all who cry in vain.
Gather all the thirsty, gather all the poor,
Gather all in Jesus’ name.

3. Gather all forgotten, gather all forlorn.
Gather all who weep and mourn.
Gather all the silent, gather all who sing,
Gather all the hearts reborn.
