All the musicians of the Grace Church community offer their thoughts and prayers to you and yours for a pleaceful, blessed and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.
NOW thank we all our God, with heart and hands, and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in whom his 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 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.
All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given,
The Son and Him who reigns with them in highest heaven;
Eternal, Triune God, whom earth and heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be, evermore.
