Give thanks, my soul, for harvestAuthor: William Watkins Reid
Tune: MUNICH (Mendelssohn)
Published in 5 hymnals
1 Give thanks, my soul, for harvest,
for store of fruit and grain;
but know the owner gives so
that we may share again.
Where people suffer hunger,
or little children cry,
with gifts from God’s rich bounty
may thankfulness reply.
2 Give thanks, my soul, for riches
of woodland, mine, and hill;
but know that gold and timber
are the Creator's still.
God lends to us, as stewards,
abundance we might share,
and thus provide earth's children
the blessing of God's care.
3 Give thanks, my soul, for labours,
that strength and days employ;
but know the Maker's purpose
brings toil as well as joy.
Show forth, O God, your purpose;
direct our will and hand
to share your love and bounty
with all in every land.
