WE GATHER HERE IN UNITY
Lyrics by S.Angeline Arceo,OSB
based on Centennial Poem (Road to Ithaca) by Florina Castillo
I. With hearts aflame we thank thee God,
For bounteous gifts untold,
Here we stand proud and singing
Praise and gladness now we hold.
Refrain: Pray’r and work in love entwining,
Hundred years of God’s delight
See us now in proud procession
Heralds of peace and joy.
II. The Benedictine rule of life
Compels us to respond.
Guided by the Gospel’s might
Walking in the One True Light (Ref.)
III. We gather here in unity
This legacy bestow
May this be our humble offering.
Then and now and ever more. (Ref.)
