from last night at mass

Here in this place new light is streaming,
Now is the darkness vanished away,
See in this space our fears and dreamings,
Brought 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 myst'ry,
We are the old- who yearn for your face,
We have been sung throughout all of hist'ry,
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.
-gather us in, mary haugen
