562 ~ Come Sing A Song of Harvest



1

Come, sing a song of harvest,
Of thanks for daily food!
To offer God the first fruits
Is old as gratitude.


2

Long, long ago, the reapers,
Before they kept the feast,
Put firstfruits in a basket,
And took it to the priest.


3

Shall we, sometimes forgetful
Of where creation starts,
With science in our pockets
Lose wonder from our hearts?


4

May God, the great creator,
To whom all life belongs,
Accept this gifts we offer,
Our service and our songs.


5

And lest the world go hungry
While ourselves are fed,
Make each of us more ready
To share our daily bread.
