WE GATHER TOGETHER - Netherlands folk hymn, translated by
Theodore Baker (1851-1934) - Public Domain

      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 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!
