Are you looking for a hymn to sing with your family this Thanksgiving?
“Now Thank We All Our God” is a beautiful hymn to consider. The words found in the three verses of this hymn are a great reminder of many things we have to be thankful for.
Now Thank We all Our God
Now thank we all our God
With hearts and hands and voices
Who wondrous things has done
In whom His world rejoices
Who from our mother’s arms
Has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love
And still is ours today
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 in His grace
And guide us when perplexed
And free us from all ills
In this world and the next
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
Words by: Martin Rinkart
