NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD

SDAH 559 - Now Thank We All Our God

1. THANKSGIVING
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 mothers’ arms
Hath blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.

2. PRAYERS
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 still in grace,
And guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills,
In this world and the next.

3. THANKSGIVING
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.

Few days ago, i was singing from the Hymn book and i clearly saw the message in this particular Number. A lot must have seen the message long long ago, but for the sake of many of us who just follow the rhythm and melody of music without paying much attention to the lyrics, i will love to share this.

Read the above lyrics like a literature, the writer (in this case we the singer) want to thank God with the whole of our being (with our hearts, with our voices and with our hand) for so many great things He has done in our lives. He has blessed us with countless gift of love since our birth and we still experience this steadfast love even till today.

A very great prayer for the course of every Christian's life was said in the second verse: May God always be close to us throughout our lifetime. May His closeness to us be with Joyful heart and blessed peace to cheer us. May He keep us forever in His grace, May He guide us whenever we are perplexed and May He heal us from every form of Sadness, sorrows, weepings, sickness and disease. Now and forevermore. (AMEN)

Again we give our praise to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The one Eternal God, Who the heaven and earth adore because that is how the praises has been, that is how it is and He shall be praised forevermore.
AMEN!!!
