Suggested Tune NUN DANKET (

1. Come gather us, O Lord,
accept our sacrifices
in this your house of prayer;
we offer you our praises,
for we ourselves are yours;
come bless us with your grace,
shine on us, gathered here,
Lord turn to us your face.


2.  Reject us not, O God,
though you have seen our weakness;
though you are true and just,
eternal Judge most righteous;
have pity on your sheep,
have mercy on us all;
we would return to you
and your most sacred call.


3.  We celebrate, O Christ,
in this gift of salvation,
We will make known the ways
of God in every nation.
The faith that we have placed
in Jesus Christ our Lord,
we will now gladly share
in our each deed and word.


4.  Come gather us, O Lord,
a house of prayer for nations -
Where people of the world
may come to sing your praises.
You seek to gather more
than those now in this place;
So send us out in pow'r
to witness to your grace.
