#21 We Gather Together


(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing,

He chastens and hasten 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, was at our side – all glory be Thine!


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!
