4 And here Thy name, O God of love,

Their children's children shall adore,
Till these eternal hills remove,
And spring adorns the earth no more. Amen.

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;
Be Thou our ruler, guardian, guide, and stay,
Thy word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.

3 From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,

Be Thy strong arm our ever sure defence,
Thy true religion in our hearts increase,
Thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.

4 Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way,

Lead us from night to never-ending day;
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
And glory, laud and praise be ever Thine. Amen.

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.
By Thee the souls of men are fed

With gifts of grace supernal,
Thou Who dost give us daily bread,

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 golden fields spread fair and broad

Where flows the crystal river:
The strains of all its holy throng

With ours to-day are blending;
Thrice blessed is that harvest-song
Which never hath an ending. Amen.

546 ALMSGIVING 8.8.8.4.

2 The golden sunshine, vernal air,

Sweet flowers and fruits Thy love declare,
Where harvests ripen, Thou art there,

Who givest all!
3 For peaceful homes, and healthful days,

For all the blessings earth displays,
We owe Thee thankfulness and praise,

Who givest all!
4 Thou didst not spare Thine only Son,

But gav'st Him for a world undone,
And freely with that blessèd One

Thou givest all.
5 Thou giv'st the Holy Spirit's dower,

Spirit of life, and love, and power,
And dost His sevenfold graces shower

Upon us all.
6 For souls redeemed, for sins forgiven,

For means of grace and hopes of heav'n,
O Lord, what can to Thee be given,

Who givest all ?
7 We lose what on ourselves we spend;

We have as treasure without end
Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend,

Who givest all.
8 Whatever, Lord, we lend to Thee

Repaid a thousandfold will be;
Then gladly will we give to Thee,

Who givest all;
9 To Thee, from whom we all derive

Our life, our gifts, our power to give;
Oh, may we ever with Thee live,
Who givest all! Amen.
