the Lord of har. vest... 1 SING VING to the Lord of harvest,
Sing songs of love and praise;
Your alleluias raise:
In fruitful order move;
song of happy love. 2 By Him the clouds drop fatness,
The deserts bloom and spring, The hills leap up in gladness,
The valleys laugh and sing:
A song of hap
All things with large increase,
With plenty and with peace. 3 Heap on His sacred altar
The gifts His goodness gave,
The souls He died to save:
When at His feet ye fall,
John S. B. Monsell, 1868
Ac. cept the walls that
hu- man hands Have raised to
wor - ship Thee.
10 THOU, whose own vast temple stands
Built over earth and sea,
Have raised to worship Thee.
2 Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,
Within these courts to abide,
Serenely by Thy side.
3 May erring minds that worship here
Be taught the better way;
Be strengthened as they pray.
4 May faith grow firm and love grow warm,
And pure devotion rise,
Wm. Cullen Bryant, 1835
