Looking for the Hymn, As we gather may your spirit work within us"

Post by Guest » Sun Sep 02, 2012 12:41 am

Hello,
Sorry for bumping this thread, but I just realized that the song as I know it is actually a medley of two songs, as the guest pointed out on "18 Oct 2009 16:10" This person also pointed out that it has additional verses.

Which brings me to the question. Does anyone have or know the melody/lyrics for Edith McNeill's verses? This is probably a shot in the dark, but hopefully someone knows SOMETHING!

Ok, contact the Community of Celebration in Aliquippa, PA who I feel certain currently holds the copyright for Edith McNeill's song, "The Steadfast Love of the Lord Never Ceases." I was a close friend of Edith when the song was written and involved in getting it published. She also wrote another fine worship song, "Bless the Holy Name of Jesus," that I arranged and has been published and recorded too, as well. George Ellis Mims, D.M.

As we gather may your spirit work within us,
As we gather may we glorify your name,
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship,

We'll be blessed because we came (2)
We are people born of water, and the spirit
We are people come to celebrate god's love,
We have come to hear the word,
We have come to share the bread,
We have come to sing our praises to god above.

As we gather may Your Spirit work within us
As we gather may we glorify Your name
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship
We'll be blessed because we came
We'll be blessed because we came

1. we are people born of water and the spirit,
we are people come to celebrate god's love,
we have come to hear the word, we have come to share the bread,
we have come to sing our praises to god above.
2. we are sons and daughters of the resurrection,
halleluiah is the song we sing with joy,
all the praises we proclaim, go to god in jesus' name.
through his cross he has become our great amen.
3. we are folk who show concern for one another,
yes, we know that god has given gifts to share.
whether rich or whether poor, down and out or blest with more,
we are gathered here to tell you how much we care.

From what I can remember, this is the version we sung at our church in the late 1980s !

1.
As we gather may your spirit work within us
We are gathering to glorify your name
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship
We'll be blessed because we came (x2)

2.
You have drawn us by Your Spirit here to worship
In this temple You have set our hearts aflame
As we lay our lives upon Your holy altar
We'll be filled in Jesus' name (x2)

3.
Coming to you is the union of our spirits
Drawing near you we expect to see your face
As we enter in in humble adoration
Lord we know it's by your grace (x2)

4.
Lifting voices in a joyous celebration
Raising hands to touch your heart and give you love
Praise you Lord you've torn the veil that was between us
You cover us with your sweet love
You cover us from up above
