We Gather Together



We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing;
Sing praises to His name, He forgets not His own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, wast at our side— all glory be Thine!

We all do extol Thee, our Leader triumphant,
And pray that Thou still our Defender wilt be;
Let thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy name be ever praised— O Lord, make us free!
