Lyrics

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!
