We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing
He chastens and hastens his will to make known
The wicked oppressing now cease to be distressing
Sing praises to his name for 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 fighting we were winning
Thou Lord was at our side and all the glory be thine.

We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant
And pray that thou still our defender wilt be
Let thy congregation escape all tribulation
Thy name be ever praised in glory, Lord make us free.

(Instrumental solo 2 verses and then Repeat Song from top)

End:
Thy name be ever praised in glory, Lord make us free.
