"O Lord, Our Father, Thanks to Thee" by Cyriacus Schneegass Translated by August Crull, 1845-1923 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. O Lord, our Father, thanks to Thee In this new year we render, For every evil had to flee Before Thee, our Defender. Our life was nourished, we were fed With rich supplies of daily bread, And peace reigned in our borders. 2. Lord Jesus Christ, our thanks to Thee In this new year we render; Thy reign hath kept Thy people free, Hath shown Thy mercies tender. Thou hast redeemed us with Thy blood, Thou art our Joy, our only Good, In life and death our Savior. 3. Lord Holy Ghost, our thanks to Thee In this new year we render, For Thou hast led our eyes to see Thy truth in all its splendor And thus enkindled from above Within our hearts true faith and love And other Christian virtues. 4. Our faithful God, we cry to Thee: Still bless us with Thy favor, Blot out all our iniquity, And hide our sins forever. Grant us a happy, good new year And, when the hour of death draws near, A peaceful, blest departure. Amen.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain. You may freely distribute, copy or print this text.
