Come Together

Come together,
come together
people of faith
from all the farthest parts of earth.

Come together
you who suffer
and you who weep.
A hopeful future lies ahead.

Come together
you with child
and you in labor.
With consolations, I’ll lead you back.

Come together!
The young women
rejoice in the dance
and young men and old are merry.

The Lord who scattered
the remnant of Israel
is gathering us now
as a shepherd keeps an errant flock.

Come together!
Our old mourning
turns to joy.
The people of faith are one again!
