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 divine
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 in battle
And pray that Thou still, our defender wilt be
Let Thy congregation, escape tribulation
Thy name be ever praised, o Lord, make us free
