Harvest Festival - 4

Praise and thanksgiving,
Father, we offer,
For all things living
You have made good;
Harvest of sown fields,
Fruits of the orchard,
Hay from the mown fields,
Blossom and wood.

Lord, bless the labour
We bring to serve you,
That with our neighbour
We may be fed.
Sowing or tilling,
We would work with you;
Harvesting, milling,
For daily bread.

Father, providing
Food for your children,
Your wisdom guiding
Teaches us share
One with another,
So that, rejoicing,
Sister and brother
May know your care.

Then will your blessing
Reach every people;
Each one confessing
Your gracious hand:
Where you are reigning
No one will hunger,
Your love sustaining
Fruitful the land.

I do like these harvest hymns!
