1 Gather we here to praise the Lord,
And tell of His love and pow’r;
With heart and with voice in sweet accord,
To wait in His courts this hour.
We sing of a love so wondrous true
It suffered past all compare;
A love beyond depths e’en angels knew,
Which heaven was glad to share.
Sing the beautiful song,
Tell of the Savior’s love;
Speed the message along,
Let it fill heaven’s high arch above;
Christ our Savior we praise,
Joyfully, cheerfully we
Sing the song we up-raise,
Christ our Redeemer to Thee!
2 Gather we here to learn His will,
To know what for each He’s planned;
To learn from His word His way until
We leave our days in His hand.
To make for our lives a trustful place
In calm or in storm to hide;
All safe until we behold His face,
When reached is the other side. [Refrain]
3 Gather we here to press His cause,
To hearts to His love unknown;
To bid many more obey His laws,
And Him as the Savior own.
To pave the way for His entrance soon,
To hearts that are now unblest;
To ask that some soul with Him commune,
Thus finding of joys the best. [Refrain]
