Now Thank We All Our God

  1. Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
    Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
    Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
    With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
  1. Oh, 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 guard us through all ills in this world, till the next!
  1. All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given,
    The Son, and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven—
    The one eternal God, Whom earth and Heav’n adore;
    For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

    Martin Rinkartc.1636
    tr. by Catherine Winkworth, 1856
