I. Now let us praise the Lord with Body, Soul and Spirit;
Who doth such wondrous Things beyond our Sense and Merit,
Who from our Mother's Womb and tender Infancy
Preserves our tender Lives in Health and Liberty.
II. O gracious God, bestow on us, whilst Life's remaining,
An ever chearful Mind, and Peace that's ever reigning.
Keep us in Innocence and Christian Constancy:
Thy Grace convey us Home to blest Eternity.
II. All Praise and Glory be to God our Heav'nly Father,
And to his only son, who all his Saints does gather,
And to the Holy Ghost, O blessed Three in one!
Thy Might and Majesty to all the World be know.
