Two-Part Choir and Organ (with optional descant instrument). This ebullient (yes, ebullient!) anthem has a sprightly accompaniment that makes it just right for any season of the year. Well, not Lent. It's just too chirpy for Lent. Also available for SATB choir and organ. This recording is of the SATB version, but you get the idea. Also GREAT for your children's choir.
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.
O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd 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.
