Praise God for the harvest of farm




Praise God for the harvest
of farm and of field,
Praise God for the people
who gather their yield,
The long hours of labour,
the skills of a team,
The patience of science,
the power of machine.


Praise God for the harvest
thatís sent from afar,
From market and harbour,
from tropical shore;
Foods packed and transported,
and planted and grown
By God-given neighbours,
unseen and unknown.


Praise God for the harvest
that comes from the ground,
By drill or my mineshaft,
by opencast mound,
For oil, and for iron, for copper and coal,
Praise God, who in love
has provided them all.


Praise God for the harvest
of science and skill,
The urge to discover, create and fulfil;
For all new inventions that promise to gain
A future more hopeful,
a world more humane.


Praise God for the harvest
of conflict and love,
For leaders and peoples
who struggle and serve
To conquer oppression,
earthís plenty increase,
And gather Godís harvest
of justice and peace.
