Gathering Song        Come to the Table        Common Hymnal
        featuring Mark Alan Schoolmeesters and Johan Asgarde

“Come to the table, from near and from far
Come from the shadows, come out of the dark
There’s room at the table, we saved you a seat
Come to the banquet, come join in the feast”

“And make us instruments
To sing your peace
And give us love for each other
