ALL SAINTS DAY - Solemnity “Let us sing our praise of the Lord, together...”
Here in this place new light is streaming
Now is the darkness vanished away
See in this space our fears and our dreamings
Brought here to you in the light of this day
Gather us in, the lost and forsaken
Gather us in, the blind and the lame
Call to us now and we shall awaken
We shall arise at the sound of our name!
We are the young, our lives are a mystery
We are the old who yearn for your face
We have been sung throughout all of history
Called to be light to the whole human race
Gather us in, the rich and the haughty
Gather us in, the proud and the strong
Give us a heart so meek and so lowly
Give us the courage to enter the song!
Procession — Gather Us In
- Marty Haugen
Darkness hangs, the world is aching,
Yearning for the the coming light.
In his rising, hope awaking.
Love has come to steal the night.
In our hearts true east we're facing,
Toward the coming of our Lord.
Morning rising, gloom now fleeing;
Christ returned! His word is true!
As we wait with hope for rescue
Love descends and all is well.
Prophets tell "You God is with us,
Heaven's gift, Emmanuel."
He is here, but hid as lowly
In the poor and mystery.
Where the bread and wine are offered
He is here: our God and King.
Offertory — Christ The Lord
- Sarah Hart and Robert Feduccia
Blest are they, the poor in spirit
Theirs is the kingdom of God
Blest are they, full of sorrow
They shall be consoled
Refrain: Rejoice and be glad
Blessed are you; holy are you
Rejoice and be glad
Yours is the Kingdom of God!
Blest are they, the lowly ones
They shall inherit the earth
Blest are they, who hunger and thirst
They shall have their fill!
Blest are they who show mercy
Mercy shall be theirs
Blest are they, the pure of heart
They shall see God!
