1 We give Thee thanks, O God, this day,
For mercies never failing;
Thy love hath brought us on our way,
For all our wants availing.
2 No less that love that met our need
Than when the manna falling
Did day by day Thy people feed,
To love and praises calling.
3 The smitten rock pour’d forth of old
Its crystal waters gleaming;
And still the same glad tale is told,
For us the floods are streaming.
4 The seasons come, the seasons go,
But each shall find us singing;
For each shall greet, us, well we know,
New favors from Thee bringing.
5 Thro’ endless years Thou art the same,
Thy mercy changes never;
Then blessed be Thy mighty name
Forever and forever.
