Gather Us In

Gather Us In

Gather us in,

the lost and the lonely,

the broken and breaking,

the tired and the aching

who long for the nourishment found at your feast.

All: Gather us in,

the done and the doubting,

the wishing and wondering,

the puzzled and pondering

who long for the company found at your feast.

All: Gather us in,

the proud and pretentious, the sure and superior,

the never inferior,

who long for the leveling found at your feast.

All: Gather us in,

the bright and the bustling,

the stirrers, the shakers,

the kind laughter makers

who long for the deeper joys found at your feast.

All: Gather us in,

from corner or limelight,

from mansion or campsite,

from fears and obsession,

from tears and depression,

from untold excesses, from treasured successes,

to meet, to eat, be given a seat,

be joined to the vine, be offered new wine,

become like the least, be found at the feast.

All: Gather us in!
