I Was So Glad – Lyrics

Lyrics

I was brokenhearted
I was weary and alone
thinking no one felt the same
and scared out on my own

 And I was so glad
when they said, “Let’s go
to the house of the HOLY ONE.”
O Spirit, gather us in
gather us into one
Spirit, gather us into one

I was cold and hungry
I was sick and locked in jail
naked and a stranger
wondering if God’s love had failed

 And I was so glad
when they said, “Let’s go
to the house of the HOLY ONE.”
O Spirit, gather us in
gather us into one
Spirit, gather us into one

 Trapped inside my privilege
scared of all that I might lose
wanting things, yet wanting God
and not knowing how to choose

 And I was so glad
when they said, “Let’s go
to the house of the HOLY ONE.”
O Spirit, gather us in
gather us into one
Spirit, gather us into one

 I had so much good news
of all that God had done
lifted me up, gave me new life
had to tell someone

 I was glad
when they said, “Let’s go
to the house of the HOLY ONE.”
O Spirit, gather us in
O Spirit, gather us in
O Spirit, gather us in
gather us into one
Spirit, gather us into one
