Lyrics

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est (where charity and love are, God is there) congregavit nos in unum Christi amor (love of Christ has gathered us into one)

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 us to 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

Not in the dark of buildings confining
not in some heaven light years away
but here in this place the new light is shining now is the kingdom and now is the day
