HARVEST AND THANKSGIVING
lAll the plenty summer pours; 1 Autumn's rich o'erflowing stores; ■Flocks that whiten all the plain; I Yellow sheaves of ripened grain: 1 Lord, for these our souls shall raise iGrateful vows and solemn praise. Peace, prosperity, and health, [Private bliss, and public wealth, ■Knowledge with its gladdening streams,
Pure religion's holier beams: Lord, for these our souls shall raise Grateful vows and solemn praise. 4 As Thy prospering hand hath blest, May we give Thee of our best; And by deeds of kindly love For Thy mercies grateful prove; Singing thus through all our days, Praise to God, immortal praise.
Anna L. Barbauld, 1772

Yea, bless His holy name,                     3 The God of harvest praise;
And joyous thanks proclaim                      Hands, hearts, and voices raise
Through all the earth;                              With one accord;
To glory in your lot                                  From field to garner throng,
Is comely; but be not                               Bearing your sheaves along,
God's benefits forgot                                  And in your harvest song
Amidst your mirth.                                    Bless ye the Lord.
Jambs Montgomery, 1825
