Old Hymns

I love looking through hymn books and reading the great hymns of the past and pray that they will be continued to be sung in the present and future. I came across this hymn titled” Now Thank We all Our God” and two verses go as follows:
Oh may the 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 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 heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, and is now,
and shall be for evermore.
