We Gather Together

We Gather Together Hymn

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, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant,
And pray that Thou still our Defender will be.
Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!

This hymn reminds me of Thanksgiving. As a small child I remember going to church and singing this hymn. Today I am thankful for family. Some of them will gather tomorrow to eat and have fellowship. Most of them will not be with me but I carry their love in my heart. My prayer for everyone who reads this will have a Happy Thanksgiving and know that the Lord Jesus is also with you even if your loved ones cannot be there.

Psalms 69:30
I will praise the name of God with a song,
and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
