1 Sing to the Lord of harvest,
sing songs of love and praise;
with joyful hearts and voices
your hallelujahs raise.
By him the rolling seasons
in fruitful order move;
sing to the Lord of harvest
a joyous song of love.
2 God makes the clouds drop fatness,
the deserts bloom and spring;
the hills leap up in gladness,
the valleys laugh and sing.
God fills from his great fullness
all things with large increase;
he crowns the year with goodness,
with plenty and with peace.
3 Heap on his sacred altar
the gifts his goodness gave,
the golden sheaves of harvest,
the souls Christ died to save.
Your hearts lay down before him
when at his feet you fall,
and with your lives adore him
who gave his life for all.
