Thread Name: Lyr Add: I folk process 'We Gather Together'
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: I folk process 'We Gather Together'
I have heard this hymn all my life, usually sung around American (USA) Thanksgiving. I believe I remember singing it in school, and I probably heard it sung in church at least once. I can't catalog all of the different sets of lyrics I may have heard or sung over the decades, but I am quite sure I remember hearing/singing the phrase "our leader in battle" on at least some occasions. I note that none of the versions quoted in this thread, nor in the "Help: Need Thanksgiving songs" thread linked by Jim Dixon on 19 Nov 08 - 05:34 PM, include that phrase. Puzzling.
