2 Soft descend the dews of heaven, Bright the rays celestial shine;
I Precious fruits will thus be given, Through an influence all divine. Sow thy seed, be never weary, , Let no fears thy soul annoy;
Be the prospect ne'er so dreary, Thou shalt reap the fruits of joy. 4 Lo, the scene of verdure brightening, See the rising grain appear; Look again: the fields are whitening, For the harvest time is near.
Thomas Hastings, 1836

2  And Thou Who cam'st on earth to die, That fallen man might live thereby,
O hear us, for to Thee we cry, In hope, O Lord, to Thee.
3  Teach us the lesson Thou hast taught, To feel for those Thy blood hath bought; That every word, and deed, and thought
May work a work for Thee.
4  For all are brethren, far and wide, Since Thou, O Lord, for all hast died:
Then teach us, whatsoe'er betide, To love them all in Thee.
5  In sickness, sorrow, want, or care, Whate'er it be, 'tis ours to share; May we, where help is needed, there
Give help as unto Thee.
6  And may Thy Holy Spirit move All those who live, to live in love, Till Thou shalt greet in heaven above
All those who give to Thee.
Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1879
