We gather together at His table,
As often as we can or are able.
On the first and the fifteenth,
Once or twice every month!
We gather together as a community,
To commemorate Him as one family,
We partake in a simple communion,
To celebrate Him in a holy union!
We gather together to REMEMBER,
His death and His resurrection,
That made us each a member,
Of His Body by His wonderful affection!
We gather together to solemnly REPENT,
Of evil ways and wrong intent,
We constantly need to reorient,
To Him one hundred percent!
We gather together to RECOMMIT,
Our lives in humble surrender,
To live according to His holy writ,
And to honor His saving splendor!
We gather together to RECONCILE,
With one another and not be juvenile,
We need to just forgive one another,
For we belong to the same Father!
We gather together to RENEW,
Our covenant with Him anew,
He will give us a needed breakthrough,
When we always keep this in view!
We gather together once again,
Around His table time and again,
He will REFRESH us with His gentle rain,
Until He comes to rule and reign!
