Chorus:
Gather your people, O Lord.
Gather your people, O Lord.
One bread, one body, one spirit of love.
Gather your people, O Lord.

1 Draw us forth to the table of life ...

2 We are parts of the body of Christ ...

3 No more harm on the mountain of God ...

4 Wash us, Lord, in the waters of life ...

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Chorus:
Gather your people, O Lord.
Gather your people, O Lord.
One bread, one body, one spirit of love.
Gather your people, O Lord.

1 Draw us forth to the table of life:
Brothers and sisters,
each of us called to walk in your light.

2 We are parts of the body of Christ,
Needing each other,
each of the gifts the Spirit provides.

3 No more harm on the mountain of God:
Swords into plowshares.
Free us, O Lord, from hardness of heart.

4 Wash us, Lord, in the waters of life:
waters of mercy,
waters of hope that flow from your side.
