Let's all Join Together in Communion Sweet (Walk in the Light)

This folk-style hymn is set to the traditional English tune THERE WAS A FARMER WHO HAD A DOG aka "BINGO".

It is very similar to Damian Lundy's "The Spirit lives to set us free" - but with a first verse focussed on the Eucharist.   However it is published as "author unknown" in the 1977 Hymns Old and New: A Hymnbook for the Irish Church which Lundy co-edited, so it's highly likely that he was not the author of this particular version - and it's not clear even which version was the original.

Instrumental version - pipe organ



Church choir, accompanies by organ and light percussion - note, this is the classic "The Spirit Lives" version, not "Let's all join together".


Lyrics

Let's all join together in Communion sweet,
Walk, walk, in the light.
And love one another 'til the Saviour we meet,
Walk, walk, in the light.

Chorus:
Walk in the light, walk in the light,
Walk in the light, walk in the light of the Lord.

Jesus died on Calvary,
Walk, walk, in the light.
To save the lost like you and me,
Walk, walk, in the light.

We know his death was not the end ,
Walk, walk, in the light.
He left his Spirit to be our friend,
Walk, walk, in the light.

And Jesus did just what he said,
Walk, walk, in the light.
He healed the sick and he raised the dead,
Walk, walk, in the light.

He left his Spirit our friend to be,
Walk, walk, in the light;
He prays in you and he prays in me,
Walk, walk, in the light.
