1 With joy we come and gladly sing
In praise of our Redeemer, King,
Who kindly watches o’er our ways,
And maketh glad our youthful days.

Refrain:
We come, we come with thanks and praise,
To Him who gives the harvest days.

2 With joy we come for Him to stand,
Who crowns with plenty our fair land;
Who sends the dew and gentle rain,
That brings the yield from hill and plain. [Refrain]

3 We come, we come to Him our King,
From whom our yearly blessings spring,
And offer up our grateful praise,
In words of thanks and joyful lays. [Refrain]
