Harvest Festival - 7
Good is the Lord, our heavenly King,
Who makes the earth his care;
Visits the pastures every spring,
And bids the grain appear.
Good is the Lord, whose liberal hand
Is daily opened wide,
To scatter plenty through the land,
That all may be supplied.
Good is the Lord, it is his love
Which makes the earth to yield;
His clouds drop fatness from above,
He whitens every field.
Good is the Lord, his love should raise
A joyful harvest song:
Say 'He is good!' and let his praise
Be heard from every tongue.
Good is the Lord, he gives us bread;
He gives his people more,
By him their souls with grace are fed,
A rich, a boundless store.
Please remember my Mother (Jean) in your prayers - today is her 88th birthday.
