Whatever sort of flower you are, join the UU Church of Cheyenne to celebrate our ability to bloom where we’re planted (even if we’re planted in a pandemic).

Order of Service

  • Hymn # 347 Gather the Spirit

1 Gather the spirit, harvest the power. Our sep’rate fires will kindle one flame. Witness the mystery of this hour. Our trials in this light appear all the same.

(Chorus) Gather in peace, gather in thanks. Gather in sympathy now and then. Gather in hope, compassion and strength. Gather to celebrate once again.

2 Gather the spirit of heart and mind. Seeds for the sowing are laid in store. Nurtured in love, and conscience refined, with body and spirit united once more. (Chorus)

3 Gather the spirit growing in all, drawn by the moon and fed by the sun. Winter to spring, and summer to fall, the chorus of life resounding as one. (Chorus)

3 Open your hearts ev’ryone. Open your hearts ev’ryone. Today will be a joyful day; enter, rejoice, and come in.

4 Don’t be afraid of some change. Don’t be afraid of some change. Today will be a joyful day; enter, rejoice, and come in.

5 Enter, rejoice, and come in. Enter, rejoice, and come in. Today will be a joyful day; enter, rejoice, and come in.

1 For the earth forever turning; for the skies, for ev’ry sea; for our lives, for all we cherish, sing we our joyful song of peace. 

2 For the mountains, hills, and pastures in their silent majesty; for the stars, for all the heavens, sing we our joyful song of peace. 

3 For the sun, for rain and thunder, for the seasons’ harmony, for our lives, for all creation, sing we our joyful praise to Thee. 

4 For the world we raise our voices, for the home that gives us birth; in our joy we sing returning home to our bluegreen hills of earth.

  • Litany of Gratitude
  • Hymn: #121 We’ll Build a Land

1 We’ll build a land where we bind up the broken. We’ll build a land where the captives go free, where the oil of gladness dissolves all mourning. Oh, we’ll build a promised land that can be. 

(Chorus) Come build a land where sisters and brothers, anointed by God, may then create peace: where justice shall roll down like waters, and peace like an ever flowing stream. 

2 We’ll build a land where we bring the good tidings to all the afflicted and all those who mourn. And we’ll give them garlands instead of ashes. Oh, we’ll build a land where peace is born. (Chorus) 

3 We’ll be a land building up ancient cities, raising up devastations from old; restoring ruins of generations. Oh, we’ll build a land of people so bold. (Chorus) 

4 Come, build a land where the mantles of praises resound from spirits once faint and once weak; where like oaks of righteousness stand her people. Oh, come build the land, my people we seek. (Chorus)
