    Title: All Are Welcome
    Author: Marty Haugen
    Copyright: 1994 GIA Publications

    Verse 1
    Let us build a house
    where love can dwell
    And all can safely live,
    A place where
    saints and children tell
    How hearts learn to forgive.
    Built of hopes and dreams and visions,
    Rock of faith and vault of grace;
    Here the love of Christ shall end divisions;
    All are welcome, all are welcome,
    All are welcome in this place.

    Verse 2
    Let us build a house where prophets speak,
    And words are strong and true,
    Where all God's children dare to seek
    To dream God's reign anew.
    Here the cross shall stand as witness
    And a symbol of God's grace;
    Here as one we claim the faith of Jesus:
    All are welcome, all are welcome,
    All are welcome in this place.

    Verse 3
    Let us build a house where love is found
    In water, wine and wheat:
    A banquet hall on holy ground,
    Where peace and justice meet.
    Here the love of God, through Jesus,
    Is revealed in time and space;
    As we share in Christ the feast that frees us:
    All are welcome, all are welcome,
    All are welcome in this place.

    All Are Welcome

    Gather Us In

    © 1982 GIA Publications

    Verse 1
    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.

    Chorus 1
    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.

    Verse 2
    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.

    Chorus 2
    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.

    Verse 3
    Here we will take the wine and the water,
    Here we will take the bread of new birth,
    Here you shall call your sons and your daughters,
    Call us anew to be salt for the earth.

    Chorus 3
    Give us to drink the wine of compassion,
    Give us to eat the bread that is you;
    Nourish us well and teach us to fashion,
    lives that are holy and hearts that are true.

    Verse 4
    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, now is the day.

    Chorus 4
    Gather us in and hold us forever,
    Gather us in and make us your own;
    Gather us in all peoples together,
    fire of love in our flesh and our bones.

    Gather Us In

    John Foley
    © 1978 New Dawn Music

    The Lord hears the cry of the poor, blessed be the Lord.

    Verse 1
    I will bless the Lord at all times
    with praise ever in my mouth.
    Let my soul glory in the Lord
    who hears the cry of the poor.

    Verse 2
    Let the lowly hear and be glad;
    the Lord listens to their pleas;
    And to hearts broken God is near;
    who hears the cry of the poor.

    Verse 3
    Every spirit crushed God will save;
    will be ransom for their lives;
    will be safe shelter for their fears,
    and will hear the cry of the poor.

    Verse 4
    We proclaim your greatness, O God,
    Your praise ever in our mouth;
    Every face brightened in your light,
    For you hear the cry of the poor.

    Hail Mary, full of grace,
    The Lord is with you.
    Blessed are you among women
    And blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary Mother of God,

    Now and at the hour of our death.

    Gentle woman, quiet light,
    Morning star,
    So strong and bright, gentle Mother,
    Peaceful dove, teach us wisdom,
    Teach us love.

    You were chosen for the Son,

    Eye Has Not Seen
    Marty Haugen
    © 1982 GIA Publications

    Eye has not seen,
    ear has not heard
    what God has ready
    for those who love him;
    Spirit of love, come,
    give us the mind of Jesus,
    teach us the wisdom of God.

    Verse 1
    When pain and sorrow weigh us down,
    be near to us, O Lord,
    forgive the weakness of our faith,
    and bear us up within your peaceful word.

    Verse 2
    Our lives are but a single breath,
    we flower and we fade,
    yet all our days are in your hands,
    so we return in love what love has made.

    Verse 3
    To those who see with eyes of faith,
    the Lord is ever near,
    reflected in the faces
    of all the poor and lowly of the world.

    Verse 4
    We sing a mystery from the past
    in halls where saints have trod,
    yet ever new the music rings
    to Jesus, Living Song of God.

    Title: Lord, When You Came
    Author: Cesareo Gabarain
    Copyright: © 1979 OCP Publications

    Verse 1
    Lord, when you came to the seashore
    You weren't seeking the wise or the wealthy,
    But only asking that I might follow.

    O Lord, in my eyes you were gazing,
    Kindly smiling, my name you were saying;
    all I treasured, I have left on the sand there;
    Close to You, I will find other seas.

    Verse 2
    Lord, you knew what my boat carried;
    Neither money nor weapons for fighting,
    But nets for fishing, my daily labor.

    Verse 3
    Lord, have you need of my labor,
    Hands for service, a heart made for loving,
    My arms for lifting the poor and broken?

    Verse 4
    Lord, send me where you would have me,
    To a village, or heart of the city;
    I will remember that you are with me.

    Title: Now We Remain
    Author: David Haas
    Copyright: © 1983 GIA Publications

    We hold the death of the Lord
    deep in our hearts.
    Living; now we remain
    with Jesus the Christ.

    Verse 1
    Once we were people afraid,
    lost in the night.
    Then by your cross we we saved;
    Dead became living, life from your giving.

    Verse 2
    Something which we have known,
    something we've touched,
    What we have seen with our eyes:
    This we have heard, life-giving word.

    Verse 3
    He chose to give of himself,
    became our bread.
    Broken, that we might live.
    Love beyond love,
    Pain for our pain.

    Verse 4
    We are the presence of God;
    this is our call.
    now to become bread and wine:
    Food for the hungry, life for the weary,
    for to live with the Lord,
    we must die with the Lord.

    Now We Remain

    Prayer of St Francis/Make Me a Channel of Your Peace
    Author: Adapted by Sebastian Temple
    Copyright: 1980 Franciscan Community

    Verse 1
    Make me a channel of your peace.
    Where there is hatred let me bring your love.
    Where there is injury your pardon, Lord,
    And where there's doubt, true faith in you.

    Verse 2
    Make me a channel of your peace.
    Where there's despair in life let me bring hope.
    Where there is darkness, only light,
    And where there's sadness ever joy.

    Oh, Master, grant that I may never seek
    So much to be consoled as to console.
    To be understood as to understand.
    To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

    Verse 3
    Make me a channel of your peace.
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    in giving of ourselves that we receive,
    and in dying that we're born to eternal life.

    the lame will all run free,
    and all will know my name.

    Verse 4
    I am the Word that leads all to freedom,
    I am the peace the world cannot give.
    I will call your name, embracing
    all your pain,
    stand up, now walk, and live!
