1 Come, sing a song of harvest,
Of thanks for daily food!
to offer God the firstfruits
Is old as gratitude.
2 Shall we, sometimes forgetful
Of where creation starts,
View science as our savior,
Lose wonder from our hearts?
3 May God, the great Creator,
To whom all life belongs,
Accept these gifts we offer,
Our service and our songs.
4 And lest the world go hungry
While we ourselves are fed,
Make each of us more ready
To share our daily bread.
