We gather together





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, were at our side, 
all glory be Thine! 
We all do extol Thee, 
Thou Leader triumphant, 
And pray that Thou still 
our Defender will be; 
Let Thy congregation 
escape tribulation; 
Thy Name be ever praised! 
O Lord, make us free! 
We gather together 
to ask the Lord's blessing.
