When we gather here to worship

Suggested Tune: Cross of Jesus (202G)

When we gather here to worship,
Though we may be two or three,
In the name of what is holy,
We are touched by mystery.

When we sit in gentle silence
Reaching deep within our hearts,
We find hidden threads within us,
To bind up our broken parts.

When we speak our pain and sorrow
And confess where we fall short,
We find solace in the sharing,
Wisdom gained and lessons taught.

When we listen to the music,
Whether instrument or song,
We are touched by deep emotion
And our spirits sing along.

We find cause for celebration,
Ev’n amid the cold world’s strife,
When we sing our joyful praises,
For the glory that is life.
