SUMMER HARVEST SONG




To praise the ever bounteous Lord,
My soul, wake all thy powers;
He calls, and at his voice come forth
The smiling harvest hours.


His covenant with the earth he keeps;
My tongue, his goodness sing;
Summer and winter know their time,
His harvest crowns the spring.


Well pleased, the toiling swains behold
The waving yellow crop;
With joy they bear the sheaves away,
And sow again in hope.


Thus teach me, gracious God, to sow
The seeds of righteousness;
Smile on my soul, and with thy beams
The ripening harvest bless.


Then in the last great harvest, I
Shall reap a glorious crop,
The harvest shall by far exceed
What I have sown in hope.


---Alternative verses---


Then, in the last great harvest, I
Shall reap a glorious crop;
The harvest shall by far exceed
What I have sowed in hope.
