the origins of “We Gather Together” are rooted in Dutch history, but its lyrics have withstood the test of time to become an heirloom American Thanksgiving hymn. Like its companion artwork, “Now Thank We All Our God,” this piece is a digital quilt sewn with vivid hues that play with traditional autumn colors.

Netherlands Folk Hymn
Translated by Theodore Baker, 1917

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 prais’d! O Lord, make us free!

“...and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one the children of God that are scattered abroad.” —John 11:52
