1. Now thank we all our GodWith hearts and hands and voices,Who wondrous things hath done,In whom his earth rejoices;Who, from our mothers' arms,Hath blessed us on our wayWith countless gifts of loveAnd still is ours today.
2. Oh, may our bounteous GodThrough all our life be near us,With ever-joyful heartsAnd blessed peace to cheer us,And keep us in his love,And guide us day and night,And free us from all ills,Protect us by his might.
