Nu danket alle Gott, der große Ding tut an allen Enden, der uns von Mutterleibe an lebendig erhält und tut uns alles Guts.
Er gebe uns ein fröhliches Herz und verleihe immerdar Friede zu unser Zeit in Israel,
und daß seine Gnade stets bei uns bleib; Und erlöse uns so lange wir leben.

Now we all thank God, Who accomplishes all ends, Who keeps us alive from birth, and does us every good.
He warms our heart and lends peace from now until our time in Israel.
May He grant that His grace remain always with us, as long as we live.
