Now thank we all our God, with hearts, and hands, and voices
Original: Nun danket alle Gott
Who wondrous things has done,
in whom His world rejoices
Who, from our mothers' arms,
has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
With ever-joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us,
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed,
And free us from all ills in this world and the next.
All praise and thanks to God the Father now to be given,
The Son, and Him who reigns with Them in highest heaven:
The one eternal God, whom earth and heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.
Lyrics: Martin Rinckart, 1636
