  • Gather In
CH. Gather In, (Echo) Gather In Welcome His people Welcome and gather in Jesus name Gather In, (Echo) Gather In Welcome his people Welcome each other, we must do the same VS 1 Come one and all to the gathering Come, let us praise as one voice Come, let our fears die and love grow Come, let us sing and rejoice.       CH VS 2 Come and lift all that are weary Come and place hope in His name Come all the sad and the lonely In His love you will remain.           CH VS 3 Come and sing Alleluia, Welcome, we’re glad that you came Come drink the cup that He offers us, Come and bless bread in His name.            CH

Some Participation Suggestions


  • Easy for congregations to pick up and sing, probably due to the echo parts in the chorus and simple wording of the verses.
  • The actions that go with this song are easy to follow and can be performed while standing, as they only involve arms and hands. 
  • When the opportunity has arisen, I have divided the congregation down the middle and assigned them lead voice and echo voice in the chorus.  


  • Actions to the chorus are provided here. Simple to achieve.
  • I would have a group of children well practiced in the gestures facing the congregation as a lead.
  • Even better when everyone is doing them, including the preacher!
  • Allowing the children to develop their own actions for the chorus is also good. I usually break them into groups, one for each verse, and they devise their own gestures. As they are performing these solo, they can be much more expansive and liberal with interpretation.
