1 Abundant fields of grain shall wave
All white for harvesting,
And boundless joy and gladness fill
The city of the King.

2 His name, enduring like the sun,
Shall ever be confessed;

All men shall call Him blest.

3 Blest be the Lord, our fathers' God,
Eternal King of kings,
Who only is omnipotent,
performing wondrous things.

4 Blest be His great and glorious Name
For evermore, Amen,
And let His glory fill the earth
From shore to shore. Amen.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
