Joyfully, All We People Come






Joyfully, All We People Come

Psalm 122:1
Psalm 100:4-5

Joyfully, all we people come
To the House of the Lord.
Worshiping Him and praising Him,
Singing with one accord.

Thanking Him, all of us today
For coming to show His love.
Seeing what He’s done before,
Leaving from Heav’n above.



Fellowship so very sweet,
Greeting all – everyone.
Smiling and laughing faces
Becoming one in the Son.



Listening now to His Word,
Quiet as we can be.
Letting His Spirit guide us
In His grace, we are freed!




Partaking of unleavened bread
And shimmering fruit of the vine.
Remembering Him on Calvary
As we spiritually dine.



Stirring waters once again
As many go down inside.
Showing us through Baptism
He rose right after He died.



Giving to God – a cheerful time,
With deep joy in our hearts.
Out-giving God, how can it be,
Who showed us from the start?



Praying for one another,
Taking hands across the aisle.
Asking for Christian unity
And help with all our trials.







Joyfully, all we people go
From the House of the Lord.
Telling ones all about Him
So they will be restored.

Thanking Him, all of us today
For coming to show His love.
Seeing what He’s done before,
Leaving from Heav’n above.
