VERSE 1:
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.

VERSE 2:
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 woes,
in this world and the next.

VERSE 3:
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 heaven adore;
for so it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
