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 fails 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;
Lord, Thine be all the glory
The victory is Thine!
We all do extol Thee, Thou King of the nation,
And pray that Thou still our Defender wilt be;
May Thy congregation escape tribulation;
Be Thou forever praised,
Thou God of the free!
