As we begin this beautiful time of the year, let us give thanks to God, Our Gracious Father, for all His gifts to us. As we enjoy Thanksgiving, let us never forget that all good gifts come from God above! Happy Thanksgiving!
We Gather Together
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!
—Traditional Thanksgiving Hymn
(A translation by Theodore Baker: 1851-1934)
