His Beloved

Gather in His name
In places of low esteem
and high.
He hears your song
as clearly
on street corners
as on mountain tops.

Gather in temples
or in barns set in open fields.
Come rich
come poor.
Come saint and sinner.
All will find a seat
at His table.

All are called to gather.
To come together
embracing our unity,
no matter how different.
Leave your skin color,
leave your ethnicity,
leave the voice of your land.

Step free
of your denomination.
Release the burden
of pious thought.
Gather where the spirit beckons
and call yourselves
His beloved.
