Endless thanks to God belong;
Hearts o’erflowing with His praise,
Join the hymns your voices raise.

Mark the wonders of His hand;
Power, no empire can withstand;
Wisdom, angels’ glorious theme;
Goodness, one eternal stream!

Gracious Being! from Thy throne
Send Thy promised blessings down;
Let Thy light, Thy truth, Thy peace,
Bid our selfish passions cease.
