533. 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 his world rejoices;
who, from our mothers' 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,
to keep us in his grace,
and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills
of this world and the next.

3 All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given,
the Son and Spirit blessed,
who reign in highest heaven -
the one eternal God,
whom heav'n and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
