62. 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 mother’s arms,
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.

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 ills,
in this world and the next.

3 In temple, synagogue,
from minaret and steeple,
let songs of praise ring out
from all God’s faithful people,
to One who gives us hope,
in times of deep despair,
that peace will come one day,
and justice will be fair.

4 Sing praise and thanks to God
whose rule in love is grounded,
who cares for all our needs
with grace that is unbounded,
the one eternal God,
whom heaven and earth adore,
the God who was and is,
and shall be evermore.
