Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Once more our harvesting is o'er,
A fresh supply laid up in store;
The Lord was pleas'd to bless our earth,
And fill our souls with joy and mirth.
2 Just such as was our wish and hope;
The Lord preserv'd and blest our crop!
And through the mercies of the Lord,
We had another crop to hoard.
3 God gave the late and early rain,
Therefore we labour'd not in vain;
Had he not sent his blessings down,
In vain our fields would have been sown.
4 By the rich bounties of our God,
We still obtain supply and food;
The air, and heat, and gentle show'rs,
Makes all those blessings to be ours.
5 Such blessings make us truly blest,
While they are by us here possess'd;
O! let us render thanks and praise
To God, for all such acts of grace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLXVII
