Happy Thanksgiving!

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!

[A hymn of Dutch origin dating back to 1597, often sung in America during the Thanksgiving Season]

  1. Awesome hymn! A new one to me, wish I could hear it (will look online…is there anything you can’t find there?). Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Wendy, thanks so much for sharing so much with us, your online admirers!
