Representative Text

TO thee, O Lord of earth and sky,
With grateful hearts we now draw nigh,
For all the fruits thy generous soil
Hath yielded in return for toil;
We want henceforth our lives to be
All fruitful in good work for thee.

2 We thank thee that thou takest heed
To all thy creatures’ daily need;
That over us, on sea or land,
Has daily been thy bounteous hand;
We want henceforth our lives to be
Filled up with grateful work for thee.

3 While heartfelt thanks to thee ascend,
With them new vows for war we blend,
Determined in thy strength to go
And live for thee ‘gainst every foe;
Henceforth each day our lives shall be
Filled with both work and war for thee.

4 Make us more earnest souls to save
As hourly we approach the grave;
So that, if ere this time next year
We should before thy throne appear,
With joy we may thy glory see
Because till death we fought for thee.
