Give thanks unto our gracious God,
whose love endures forever;
the Lord, our strength and song shall be
from whom no fault can sever.
Sing mighty songs of victory,
both now and for eternity.
The Lord will leave us never.
The Lord will leave us never.

I shall not die, but I shall live,
and sing God's grace with elation.
Though I deserve no more than death,
God blesses me with salvation.
The gate that should unyielding be
is open wide to welcome me.
Give thanks and adoration.
Give thanks and adoration.

Upon the stones the builders judged
imperfect, weak and tender,
now rest the corners of God's house,
still unsurpassed with splendor.
This is the day the Lord has made;
God is my sun, and God, my shade.
Rejoice, and praise gladly render.
Rejoice, and praise gladly render.
