1. 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.
2. 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!
3. We all do extol thee, thou 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!
