Communion Hymn


Gather Us In

Performed by Susan Millard Schwarz
Music by Greg Granoff
Lyrics from a poem by Mary Baker Eddy

Listen to the Music!

Communion Hymn, one of Mary Baker Eddy’s beloved poems known by congregations worldwide, is sensitively yet powerfully delivered by Susan Millard Schwarz, from a contemporary, traditional solo arrangement composed by Greg Granoff. Its timeless message reminds us of Jesus’s great gift to mankind: his selfless sharing of the power of truth through healing. Mrs. Eddy’s poem is a helpful reminder that this communion, symbolized by “the water, the bread, and the wine”, holds greater importance in its spiritual application than in the physical rituals associated with it. The song is off Susan’s album Gather Us In, a compilation of some of her favorite inspirational songs which include texts from a broad range of faith traditions.
