Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. James i : 17. 1 We plough the fields, and scatter 2 He only is the Maker The good seed on the land,
Of all things near and far; But it is fed and watered
He paints the wayside flower, By God's Almighty hand;
He lights the evening star; He sends the snow in winter, The winds and waves obey Him,
The warmth to swell the grain, Him the birds are fed; The breezes and the sunshine, Much more to us, His children, And soft, refreshing rain.
He gives our daily bread. All good gifts around us
All good gifts around us
For all His love.
3 We thank Thee, then, 0 Father,
For all things bright and good, The seed-time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food; Accept the gifts we offer,
For all Thy love imparts, And, what Thou most desirest,
Our humble, thankful hearts.
Are sent from heaven above,
For all His love.
While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer
and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Gen. viii: 22.
i Eternal Source of every joy!
Well may Thy praise our lips employ,
2 The flow'ry Spring, at Thy command,
Embalms the air and paints the land:
3 Thy hand, in Autumn, richly pours,
Through all our coasts, redundant stores :
4 The seasons, months, the weeks and days,
Demand successive songs of praise:
Ma Ye shall proclaim liberty throughout
all the land unto all the inhabitants
thereof. Levit. XXV: 10. I My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing :
Let freedom ring!
Thy name I love :
Like that above.
Sweet freedom's song;
The sound prolong.
To Thee we sing :
2 For her our prayers shall be, Our fathers' God, to Thee,
On Thee we wait!
God save the State!
3 Lord of all truth and right,
On Thee we call !
God save us all I
God be merciful unto us, and bless us, and cause his face to shine upon us.
Ps. lxvii: 1.
i Great God! Thou dost all nations rule,
And their affairs control;
Thy love from pole to pole.
2 Our native land in mercy view!
From heaven, O Lord, look down! Thy kingdom in each heart erect !
Maintain Thy rightful crown !
3 On people and on ruler let
Thy blessing, Lord, be shed;
In wisdom's paths be led.
4 As Thee, their God our fathers owned,
So Thou art still our King :
Or our deliverance bring.
5 To Thee all glory we ascribe,
From whom salvation came;
And ever bless Thy Name.
