We Give Thee Thanks O God This Day


We give Thee thanks, O God, this day,
For mercies never failing;
Thy love hath brought us on our way,
For all our wants availing.

No less that love that met our need
Than when the manna falling
Did day by day Thy people feed,
To love and praises calling.

The smitten rock pour’d forth of old
Its crystal waters gleaming;
And still the same glad tale is told,
For us the floods are streaming.

The seasons come, the seasons go,
But each shall find us singing;
For each shall greet, us, well we know,
New favors from Thee bringing.

Thro’ endless years Thou art the same,
Thy mercy changes never;
Then blessed be Thy mighty name
Forever and forever.
