Recessional HymnNow thank we all our God With hearts and hands and voicesWho wondrous things hath doneIn whom this world rejoices.Who from our mother’s armsHath blessed us on our wayWith countless gifts of loveAnd still is ours todayO may this bounteous GodThrough all our lives be near usWith ever joyful hearts And blessed peace to cheer us.And keep us in his graceAnd guide us when perplexedAnd free us from all illsIn this world and the next.
