(The goodness of the created order. Positive images of mothers. Harmony by Bach. We sang it at our wedding. What more do you want?) 🙂

Now thank we all our God,
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things hath done,
in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.

Oh, may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever-joyful hearts
and blessèd peace to cheer us,
to keep us in his grace,
and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills
in this world and the next.

All praise and thanks to God
who reigns in highest heaven —
the Father and the Son
and Spirit — now be given:
the one, eternal God,
whom earth and heaven adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
