16. Time Now to Gather

Time now to gather,
Time now to feel
Christ's holy presence
gracing this meal.
Grain from the harvest
fruit of the vine;
simple the supper,
sacred the sign.

Time to remember
Christ who was sent.
Time to say thank you
for all he meant.
Come to this table.
Come, without fear.
God will forgive you,
welcome you here.

All who are hungry,
come, and be fed.
Serve one another
this cup and bread.
All who are troubled,
hurting, or sad,
come, and find healing.
Come, and be glad!
