We Do Give Thanks

Representative Text

1 Unto Thee, O God, we do give thanks,
Unto Thee we do give thanks;
For Thy wondrous works we do declare;
For Thy Name is everywhere.

2 To Thee, O Kind Lord, we do give thanks,
we do unto Thee give thanks,
For Thy goodness, mercy, truth, and love,
Shown to us from heav'n above.

3 Blessed Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost:
We will ever praise Thee, love Thee more,
All our sins we do deplore.

4 Graciously forgive us now we pray.
O forgive us now, we pray.
Unto Thee, O God, we raise this hymn,
For Thy praise, we raise this hymn.
