Gathered people of God
[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
Tired of godlessness and spite,
longing for the place of light,
fellowship, and words of God:
foretaste of the home ahead.
Place of strength and unity,
place of peace and purity,
place of love, forgiveness, grace:
pointing to that heavenly place.
For its safety pray, its peace
(all divisiveness to cease);
worship and prosperity,
comfort and security. cf. Psalm 122 Tune: 77 77
Last Sunday was Pentecost Sunday, regarded as the birthday of Christ Jesus’ church (‘church’ referring to the gathered people of God, not the building)
