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 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. 

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.

Here We Go Over to Silly Tilly’s
Over the river and through the wood
Singing, the Reapers Homeward Come
To Gramma’s House
We Gather Together
