 1TITLEGather Us InAUTHORMarty Haugen
 2COPYRIGHTLINEGIA PublicationsPARTŽHere in theis place new light is streaming,
 3Now is the darkness vanished away,
 4See in this space our fears and our dreamings,
 5Brought here to you in the light of this day.PART™Gather us in the lost and forsaken,
 6Gather us in the blind and the lame;
 7Call to us now, and we shall awaken,
 8We shall arise at the sound of our name.PARTŹWe are the young our lives are a myst'ry
 9We are the old who yearn for your face,
10We have been sung throughout all of hist'ry,
11Called to be light to the whole human race.PARTGather us in the rich and the haughty,
12Gather us in the proud and the strong;
13Give us a heart so meek and so lowly,
14Give us the courage to enter the song.PARTŽHere we will take the wine and the water,
15Here we will take the bread of new birth,
16Here we shall call your sons and your daughters,
17Call us anew to be salt for the earth.PART¨Give us to drink the wine of compassion,
18Give us to eat the bread that is you;
19Nourish us well, and teach us to fashion
20Lives that are holy and hearts that are true.PARTŚNot in the dark of buildings confining,
21Not in some heaven, light years away, But
22here in this place the new light is shining,
23Now is  the Kingdom, now is the day.PART’Gather us in and hold us forever,
24Gather us in and make us your own;
25Gather us in all peoples together,
26Fire of love in our flesh and our bone.
