    Now Thank We All Our God

    With dignity

    1. Now thank we all our God

    With hearts and hands and voices,

    Who wondrous things hath done,

    In whom his earth rejoices;

    Who, from our mothers’ arms,

    Hath blessed us on our way

    With countless gifts of love

    And still is ours today.

    2. Oh, may our bounteous God

    Through all our life be near us,

    With ever-joyful hearts

    And blessed peace to cheer us,

    And keep us in his love,

    And guide us day and night,

    And free us from all ills,

    Protect us by his might.
