1 Come let us join to praise our God,
Who is our friend indeed:
Who gives us life, and health, and food!
And all what e'er we need.
2 His blessings have endow'd our fields,
And caus'd each plant to grow;
And full supplies to us they yield,
And all that live below.
3 The early and the latter rain,
The Lord was pleas'd to send;
Our barns and kitchens fill'd again,
By him, who is our friend.
4 Our God remembers us in love,
And daily we receive
His gifts and blessings from above:
By which we more and live.
5 The labours of our hands are blest,
Our wants are all supplied;
What e'er doth answer for our best,
The Lord will still provide.
6 We also have his holy word!
And all the means of grace;
Should we not worship him, our Lord?
And sing his endless praise.
7 With joy and wonder we do see,
What God for us has done!
Our songs of praise shall ever be,
To God, our God alone.
