1.	Now thank we all our God, 
	with heart and hands and voices, 
	who wondrous things has done, 
	in whom this world rejoices; 
	who from our mothers' arms 
	has blessed us on our way 
	with countless gifts of love, 
	and still is ours today.

2.	O may this bounteous God 
	through all our life be near us, 
	with ever joyful hearts 
	and blessed peace to cheer us; 
	and keep us still in grace, 
	and guide us when perplexed; 
	and free us from all ills, 
	in this world and the next.

3.	All praise and thanks to God 
	the Father now be given; 
	the Son, and him who reigns 
	with them in highest heaven; 
	the one eternal God, 
	whom earth and heaven adore; 
	for thus it was, is now, 
	and shall be evermore.
