Thread Name: Lyr Add: I folk process 'We Gather Together'
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: I folk process 'We Gather Together'
Hmmm, I was just going to say it IS a hymn and it was in my circa 1963 Lutheran (Missouri Synod) hymnal. But I just pulled the hymnal off the shelf -- and it's not there under anything I could find it by. Checked index of first lines, checked the "Harvest and Thanksgiving" section (which is where I sort of remember it).

I seem to remember, though, these words --

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing
In grateful devotion our anthem we raise

Can't seem to get further than that. DEFINITELY remember singing it in church during the '6os. Or at school -- I went to Milwaukee Lutheran High School (Missouri Synod) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Gotta ask my brother or sister-in-law -- both ministers (ELCA).

Right now gotta run off to work.
