4 And here Thy name, O God of love,
Their children's children shall adore,
splendor thro' the skies, Our grateful songs be-fore Thy throne a - rise. A-men.
2 Thy love divine hath led us in the past,
In this free land by Thee our lot is cast;
3 From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,
Be Thy strong arm our ever sure defence,
4 Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way,
Lead us from night to never-ending day;

The val-leys stand so thick with corn That e-ven they are sing - ing. A-men.
2 And now on this our festal day,
Thy bounteous hand confessing, Upon Thine altar, Lord, we lay
The first-fruits of Thy blessing.
With gifts of grace supernal,
Give us the Bread eternal.
May we, the angel-reaping o'er,
Stand at the last accepted, Christ's golden sheaves for evermore
To garners bright elected.
3 We bear the burden of the day,
And often toil seems dreary; But labor ends with sunset ray,
And rest is for the weary.
4 Oh, blessèd is that land of God,
Where saints abide forever;
Where flows the crystal river:
With ours to-day are blending;

2 The golden sunshine, vernal air,
Sweet flowers and fruits Thy love declare,
Who givest all!
For all the blessings earth displays,
Who givest all!
But gav'st Him for a world undone,
Thou givest all.
Spirit of life, and love, and power,
Upon us all.
For means of grace and hopes of heav'n,
Who givest all ?
We have as treasure without end
Who givest all.
Repaid a thousandfold will be;
Who givest all;
Our life, our gifts, our power to give;
