572. Praise to God, Immortal Praise

1 Praise to God, immortal praise,
For the love that crowns our days!
Bounteous Source of ev'ry joy,
Let Thy praise our tongues employ!

2 For the blessings of the field,
For the stores the gardens yield;
Flocks that whiten all the plain;
Yellow sheaves of ripened grain:

3 All that spring, with bounteous hand,
Scatters o’er the smiling land;
All that autumn freely pours
From her overflowing stores:

4 These to Thee, my God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow.
And for these my souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

Amen.
