We Gather Together Lyrics

(Popular English version by Theodore Baker, 1894)

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!

(Original Dutch version by Adrianus Valerius, 1626)

Wilt heden nu treden voor God den Heere,
Hem boven al loven van herten seer,
End’ maken groot zijns lieven namens eere,
Die daar nu onsen vijant slaat terneer.

Ter eeren ons Heeren wilt al u dagen
Dit wonder bijzonder gedencken toch;
Maekt u, o mensch, voor God steets wel te dragen,
Doet ieder recht en wacht u voor bedrog.

D’arglosen, den boosen om yet te vinden,
Loopt driesschen, en briesschen gelyck een leeu,
Soeckende wie hy wreedelyck verslinden,
Of geven mocht een doodelycke preeu.

Bidt, waket end’ maket dat g’in bekoring,
End’ ‘t quade met schade toch niet en valt.
U vroomheyt brengt den vijant tot verstoring,
Al waer sijn rijck nog eens so sterck bewalt.

About the Song ‘We Gather Together’

The Christian hymn We Gather Together is usually sung during religious services and family gatherings on Thanksgiving Day in the United States. The song comes from the Dutch song Wilt heden nu treden written by poet and composer Adrianus Valerius (also known as Adriaen Valerius). The tune that accompanies the hymn is known as “Kremser” from the score arrangement and lyric translation into Latin and German that Eduard Kremser did in 1877.

Valerius wrote the song during the Dutch War of Independence (1568–1648) fought against the Roman Catholic Habsburg King Philip II of Spain. The largely Protestant provinces of the Low Countries felt oppression from the Spanish ruler as they were not allowed to gather for religious purposes. The song resonated strongly with many of the Dutch people especially with the repression they were experiencing at the time.

The song first appeared in America as part of a hymnal in 1903. It important to note, however, that the English version of the song is not a direct translation of the Dutch lyrics. The hymn became increasingly popular to use during Thanksgiving services for the centennial celebrations of towns and colleges. Nowadays, American churches often sing this song on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

Lyrics

The first noel the angels did sing
Was to certain poor shepherds
In fields as they lay
In fields fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the king of israel
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the king of israel
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the king of israel.

What Child Is This? | Easy Piano Sheet Music

what-child-is-this-piano-solo

Lyrics

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and donkeys are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spears shall pierce him through,
the cross he bore for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
the Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

About the Erie Canal
The Erie Canal, in New York state, extends from the Hudson River to Lake Erie, connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.

Lyrics
I’ve got a mule,
Her name is Sal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
She’s a good old worker
And a good old pal,
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal.
We’ve hauled some barges in our day
Filled with lumber, coal and hay
And ev’ry inch of the way I know
From Albany to Buffalo.

Low Bridge, ev’rybody down,
For it’s Low Bridge,
We’re coming to a town!
You can always tell your neighbor,
You can always tell your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated
On the Erie Canal.
Low Bridge, ev’rybody down,
For it’s Low Bridge,
We’re coming to a town!
You can always tell your neighbor,
You can always tell your pal,
If you’ve ever navigated
On the Erie Canal.

Lyrics for Go Down Moses

When Israel was in Egypts land,
Let My people go!
Oppressed so hard they could not stand,
Let My people go! Go down, Moses,
Way down in Egypt’s land;
Tell old Pharaoh
To let My people go! No more shall they in bondage toil,
Let My people go!
Let them come out with Egypts spoil,
Let My people go! Go down, Moses,
Way down in Egypt’s land;
Tell old Pharaoh
To let My people go! Oh, let us all from bondage flee,
Let My people go!
And let us all in Christ be free,
Let My people go! Go down, Moses,
Way down in Egypt’s land;
Tell old Pharaoh
To let My people go! You need not always weep and mourn,
Let My people go!
And wear these slav’ry chains forlorn,
Let My people go! Go down, Moses,
Way down in Egypt’s land;
Tell old Pharaoh
To let My people go! Your foes shall not before you stand,
Let My people go!
And you’ll possess fair Canaan’s land,
Let My people go! Go down, Moses,
Way down in Egypt’s land;
Tell old Pharaoh
To let My people go!
