    Text and music: Anon., arr. Cathy Neff (ASCAP)
    Original Netherlands text translated by Theodore Baker
    Original tune arrangement by Edward Kremser.

    1. 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.

    2. 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!

    3. 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!
