Scattered Yet Together : Lyrics

Meter 67 67 6.

1. Scattered, yet together,
We have come to worship You.
Scattered, yet together,
For we know Your word is true!
Word is true! Word is true!

2. Scattered, yet together,
We approach the mercy throne.
Scattered, yet together,
We seek You, and You alone!
You alone! You alone!

3. Scattered, yet together,
Our hearts are low with grief.
Scattered, yet together,
We await Your sweet relief.
Sweet relief! Sweet relief!

4. Scattered, yet together,
Amidst moments of despair.
Scattered, yet together,
You will answer fervent prayer!
Fervent prayer! Fervent prayer!

5. Scattered, yet together,
We hear Your gentle whisper:
My peace I give to you,
I will forsake You never.
Give My peace! Give My peace!

6. Scattered, yet together,
We receive Your Holy Breath.
Scattered, yet together,
New life without knowing death.
Holy Breath! Holy Breath!
