“Now Thank We All Our God”

_

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,

who wondrous things hath done, in whom his world rejoices;

who from our mother’s arms hath 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 be given,

the Son, and Holy Ghost, supreme in highest heaven,

the one eternal God, whom earth and heaven adore;

for thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.                   

   

                                  – Martin Rinckart
