52. We Gather Together

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
And humbly confessing our faith we now sing.
Our anthem ascending speaks gratitude unending;
To thee, O Lord of Life, glad praises we bring.

We worship thee, Spirit triumphant, we bless thee;
Through life's storm and tempest our Guide has thou been.
When perils overtake us, a refuge thou wilt make us;
That on the greater journey, Lord, we may begin.

With voices united our praises we offer,
And gladly our song of thanksgiving we raise;
Let thy benediction confirm our conviction
That love and light are thine; to thee ever be praise.
