Nun Danket Alle Gott

Representative Text

1 Nun danket alle Gott,
mit Herzen, Mund und Händen,
der große Dinge thut
an uns und allen Enden,
der uns von Mutterleib
und Kindesbeinen an
unzählig viel zu gut
nnd noch jetzund gethan.

2 Der ewig reiche Gott
woll uns bei unserm Leben,
ein immer fröhlich Herz
und edlen Frieden geben,
und uns in seiner Gnad
erhalten fort und fort
und uns aus aller Noth
erlösen hier und dort.

3 Lob, Ehr und Preis sei Gott
dem Vater und dem Sohne
und dem, der beiden gleich
im höchsten Himmelsthrone,
dem dreieinigen Gott,
als es im Anfang war,
und ist und bleiben wird,
jetzund und immerdar.
