NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD

Martin Rinckart, transl. Catherine Winkworth

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

Who wondrous things has done in whom His world rejoices

Who from our mother’s 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

To keep us in His grace and guide us when perplexed

And free us from all ills of this world in the next

 

All praise and thanks to God, the Father now be given

The Son and Spirit blest, who reign in highest heaven

The One eternal God, whom heaven and earth adore

For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore
