We Gather Together
We gather together in joyful thanksgiving,
Acclaiming creation, whose bounty we share;
Both sorrow and gladness we find now in our living,
We sing a hymn of praise to the life that we bear.
We gather together to join in the journey
Confirming, committing our passage to be
A true affirmation, in joy and tribulation,
When bound to human care and hope – then we are free.
