With Ever Joyful Heart

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

Oh, may this gracious God
Through all our lives be near us,
With ever joyful heart,
And blessed peace to cheer us;
Preserve us in his grace
And guide us in distress,
And free us from all sin
Till heaven we possess.

All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given,
The Son and Spirit blest,
Who reigns in highest heaven.
Eternal Triune God,
Whom earth and heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore!

Tintoretto, "The Miracle of Manna"
