Raise the song of harvest-home!
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied:
Come to God's own temple, come,

Raise the song of harvest-home! 2 All the world is God's own field,

Fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown,
Unto joy or sorrow grown:
First the blade, and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear:-
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

A-men.

3 For the Lord our God shall come,

And shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day
All offences purge away;
Give His angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store

In His garner evermore.
4 Even so, Lord, quickly come

To Thy final harvest-home;
Gather Thou Thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin,
There for ever purified,
In Thy presence to abide:
Come, with all Thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest-home!

Henry Alford, 1844 (text of 1867)

the Lord of har. vest... 1 SING VING to the Lord of harvest,

Sing songs of love and praise;
With joyful hearts and voices

Your alleluias raise:
By Him the rolling seasons

In fruitful order move;
Sing to the Lord of harvest

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
He filleth with His fulness

All things with large increase,
He crowns the year with goodness,

With plenty and with peace. 3 Heap on His sacred altar

The gifts His goodness gave,
The golden sheaves of harvest,

The souls He died to save:
Your hearts lay down before Him,

When at His feet ye fall,
And with your lives adore Him,
Who gave His life for all.

John S. B. Monsell, 1868

Ac. cept the walls that

hu- man hands Have raised to

A-men.

&

10 THOU, whose own vast temple stands

Built over earth and sea,
Accept the walls that human hands

Have raised to worship Thee.

2 Lord, from Thine inmost glory send,

Within these courts to abide,
The peace that dwelleth without end,

Serenely by Thy side.

3 May erring minds that worship here

Be taught the better way;
And they who mourn and they who fear,

Be strengthened as they pray.

4 May faith grow firm and love grow warm,

And pure devotion rise,
While round these hallowed walls the storm
Of earth-born passion dies.

Wm. Cullen Bryant, 1835
