Oft We Come Together

Worship services serve a great purpose in the life of Christ’s church. They are for worship. They are for encouragement. They are for learning. They are for teaching. They are for support. They are for help. They are for prayer. They are for many, many things. This hymn reminds us that the things we do when we come together are all a part of worship and praise of God.

It is a really nice reminder of worship time together. Singing, praying, giving back to the Lord from the many resources He has given us stewardship over, and taking communion together (the bread and the cup) – each of these parts of worship help us to be closer to our Lord and to encourage each other.

As I was writing this, I was humming this song quietly to myself. Within just a few moments, the girls had started singing it along with my humming. So we sang it together a couple of times. They all commented on the thought of this song. One to definitely keep around.

Here is a video of a congregation singing it, though it never actually showed the people. Still, a nice congregational singing of a good hymn? Always a joy for me.

At Home.

Oft We Come Together

words & music: Tillit S. Teddlie (1944)

1 Oft we come together,
Oft we sing and pray;
Here we bring our off-ring
On this holy day.

Help us Lord
Thy love to see.
May we all in truth and spirit
Worship Thee.

2 May we keep in mem’ry
All that Thou hast said;
May we truly worship
As we eat this bread.

3 May we all in spirit,
All with one accord,
Take this cup of blessing
Given by the Lord.
