1 'Give God thanks for he is gracious!'
now may Israel truly say;
through great trials he has brought us
to the dawn of this new day.

All God's children, all God's children,
praise the wonders he has done (he has done),
praise the wonders he has done!

2 When God's people walked the desert,
hungry, thirsty, faint of heart;
he prepared for them a city,
gave them hope and took their part.

3 Those who steer their ships through trouble,
ride the storm and plumb the deep,
reach at length their promised haven,
bless that grace which brings them sleep.

4 Give God thanks for all his mercies:
fields are watered, crops are sown,
sheep and cattle fill the pastures,
babes in arms have safely grown.
