492. Now Thank We all Our God

1 Now thank we all our God
With hearts and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done,
In whom the world rejoices;
Who from our mother's arms
Hath blest us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.

2 O may this bounteous God
Thro' 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.

3 All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given;
Praise to the Son and Him
Who reigns with them in heaven;
Praise to the triune God,
Whom earth and heav'n adore;
For thus it was, is now
And shall be evermore.
