We plough the fields and scatter


    • We plough the fields and scatter 
    • The good seed on the land, 
    • But it is fed and watered 
    • By God's almighty hand; 
    • He sends the snow in winter, 
    • The warmth to swell the grain, 
    • The breezes and the sunshine, 
    • And soft refreshing rain. 

    • All good gifts around us 
    • Are sent from heaven above; 
    • Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord, 
    • For all His love. 

    • He only is the Maker 
    • Of all things near and far; 
    • He paints the wayside flower, 
    • He lights the evening star; 
    • The winds and waves obey Him, 
    • By Him the birds are fed; 
    • Much more to us, His children, 
    • He gives our daily bread. 

    • We thank Thee, then, O Father, 
    • For all things bright and good; 
    • The seedtime and the harvest, 
    • Our life, our health, our food. 
    • No gifts have we to offer 
    • For all Thy love imparts, 
    • But that which Thou desirest, 
    • Our humble, thankful hearts.
