We Gather Together

After playing just the melody notes through once, I like to play this a second time with twice as many strokes... it fills the song out somehow.

See below for an MP3 of this arrangement.

Note that this is in 3/4 time, with the first beat of each line held over from the previous measure.

Chords: G  G  - (C)  - G C    G  C  - (G) D     G - 
Melody: D4 D    E    D B C    D  C    B   A     B G3 
Lyrics: We ga - ther together in joy -ful Thanksgiving, 

-  D   - (C)  D  Em    - (D)   D   A - (D) A7   D       - 
D4 D     E    F# G       A     F#  E   D   E    D 
Re-joi - cing in goods - which the a - ges have wrought, 

-   D7   - (C)  D7 G     -   -   D     - (C) C     (G) G     - 
D   D      E    F# G     D   D   D       E   C     D   B     G3 
For life - that en-folds us, and helps - and heals and holds us, 

G7  C     - (G) Am       G     - (C)   Em  C  D     - (G)  G - 
G   C4      D   E    C   D       C     B   C  A       G3   G 
And leads - be -yond the goals - which our forbears - once sought!
