Theme: Thanksgiving Hymns

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!
