We gather together in joyful thanksgiving,

acclaiming creation whose bounty we share;

both sorrow and gladness we find now in our living,

we sing a hymn of praise to the life that we bear.


We gather together to join in the journey,

confirming committing our passage to be

a true affirmation, in joy and tribulation,

when bound to human care and hope--then we are free.

Oh, we give thanks for this precious day,

For all gathered here, and those far away;

For this time we share with love and care,

Oh, we give thanks for this precious day.

Oh, we give thanks.


Oh, we give thanks for this precious day,

For all gathered, all gathered here, far away;

For this time we share with love and care,

Oh, we give thanks for this precious day.

Oh, we give thanks.

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
