A song of gratefulness and thankfulness


Now our God we give thanks to You
For all the things You have done
You've shown Your grace 
in so many ways
Your mercy and kindness and power

We thank You, thank You, 
        thank You Lord
We thank You, thank You, 
        thank You Lord

2. Now our God we give love to You... 

3. Now our God we give praise to You...

What a joy it is to serve the Lord this morning 
as we worship Him with several of your songs. 
"Now Our God"  will be perfect for Thanksgiving 
as we endeavor to help the Body of Christ to focus on the 
"good" things in life that their God has made possible!

Story Behind This Song


It was sung as the closing song at our 12/00 Christmas pageant
by the children of New Hope Chapel !

Hear Peter Gringhuis sing this song ! 
(from the Netherlands)

In December 2000, Gerrit Gustafson was kind enough to review
"How Precious Is Your Love"  and suggested several useful modifications
to the melody and chords.  He also gave me encouraging feedback on

this song, "Now Our God", and  "How Awesome Is This Place".

A church group in Kronberg, Germany included
"Now Our God" in their holiday concert!

Herr, mein Gott, wir danken dir

1. Herr, mein Gott, wir danken dir, für alles, was du getan.

2. Herr, mein Gott, wir lieben dich, für alles, was du getan.

3. Herr, mein Gott, wir preisen dich, für alles, was du getan.


1.-3. Du zeigst uns Gnade immerzu, Erbarmen, Freundlichkeit und Macht.


1. Wir danken, danken, danken dir, wir danken, danken, danken dir Gott.

2. Wir lieben, lieben, lieben dich, wir lieben, lieben, lieben dich Gott.

3. Wir preisen, preisen, preisen dich, wir preisen, preisen, preisen dich Gott.
