We gather together to ask the Lord's
He chastens and hastens His will
to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease
Sing praises to His name, He forgets
not His own.
Beside us to guide us, our God with
Ordaining, maintaining, His kingdom
So from the beginning the fight
we were winning,
Thou, Lord, wast at our side: the
glory be Thine!
We all do extol Thee, Thou leader
And pray that Thou still our defender
Let Thy congregation endure tribulation;
Thy name be ever praised: O Lord,
make us free!
