1 We bless the God whose bounteous love
Through all creation flows;
Who pours his blessings from above,
And life and bliss bestows.
2 God reigns on high, but not confines
His goodness to the skies;
Through the whole earth his bounty shines,
And every want supplies.
3 With longing eyes thy creatures wait
On him for daily food,
His lib'ral hand provides them meat,
And fills their hearts with good.
4 Benign Creator! bounteous Lord!
Where'er we turn our eyes,
Fruits of thy wisdom, pow'r, and love,
In beauteous order rise.
5 Then let our cheerful hearts and tongues
Proclaim the praise divine:
Thou, Lord, hast given the rich increase,
And be the glory thine.
