Nun danket alle Gott,
der große Dinge tut
an allen Enden,
der uns von Mutter Leibe
an lebendig erhält
und tut uns alles Guts.

Er gebe uns ein fröhlich Herz
und verleihe immerdar Friede
zu unsern Zeiten in Israel
und dass seine Gnade stets uns bleibe
und erlöse uns solange wir leben.

Nun danket alle Gott
mit Herzen, Mund und Händen,
der große Dinge tut
an uns und allen Enden,
der uns von Mutterleib
und Kindesbeinen an
unzählig viel zu gut
und noch jetzund getan.

Now all thank God,
who does great things
for all purposes,
who, from our mothers’ wombs,
has sustained us
and does all good things for us.

He gives us a joyful heart
and always grants peace
in our time in Israel
and may his grace stay with us
and redeem us as long as we live.

Now all thank God
with hearts, mouths, and hands
who has done great things
for us for all purposes.
Who from our mothers’ wombs
and children’s steps
has done countless good things
and still does.
