With joy, with gladness we gather before You,
O Lord, our Lord!
With prayer and with praises, with silence and song,
O Lord, our Lord!
Prepared and expecting, we come
As in heaven, so on earth.

We come together, Your people, Your family,
O Lord, our Lord!
Your temple, Your branches, Your Body, Your Bride,
O Lord, our Lord!
To bow and to listen and serve
As in heaven, so on earth.

Your peace, Your presence, Your glory, Your kingdom,
O Lord, our Lord!
Believing, obeying, we watch and we wait,
O Lord, our Lord!
Come down in Your fullness, O God,
As in heaven, so on earth!
