Nun danket alle Gott
Now let everyone thank God
Mit Herzen, Mund und Händen,
with hearts, mouths, and hands,
Der große Dinge tut
Who does great things
An uns und allen Enden,
for us and to all ends,
Der uns von Mutterleib
Who has done for us from our mother’s wombs
Und Kindesbeinen an
and childhood on
Unzählig viel zugut
many uncountable good things
Und noch itzund getan.
and does so still today.
