                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Now thank we all our God
        With heart and hands and voices,
        Who wondrous things hath done,
        In whom His world rejoices;
        Who from our mother's arms
        Hath blessed us on our way
        With countless gifts of love,
        And still is ours today.

        2. Oh, 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.

        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.
