My Favorite Thanksgiving Hymn

We Gather Together
~
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 diving;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning:
Thou, Lord, wast 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!
