We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing,
He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing cease them from distressing,
Sing praises to his name, He forgets not His own.

Beside us to guide us our bond with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His Kingdom divine,
So, from the beginning, the fight we were winning,
The Lord is at our side, the Glory divine.

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

Lord, make us free!
