Description

SATB (or Unison) Choir and Organ. A very "English" harvest anthem with a wonderful, gentle tune — great for Thanksgiving or any time during the harvest season.

Harvest blessings, richly show'red
By the God of love;
Field and garden, sweetly flow'red;
Heav'n's blue sky above.
For these mercies now we sing
Grateful praise to God our King.

Nature's wonders yearly sharing,
Thank we now our Lord,
Who, for all his creatures caring,
Doth his gifts afford.
For these mercies now we sing
Grateful praise to God our King.

Loving God and loving neighbour,
Man in joy doth reap
Harvest of the farmer's labour,
Harvest of the deep.
For these mercies now we sing
Grateful praise to God our King.

He who took the bread and brake it,
Blessed it with the wine,
Common food of earth doth make it
Sustenance divine.
For these mercies now we sing
Grateful praise to God our King.

Harvest blessings,
richly show'red
By the God of might;
Body, soul and mind, empow'red
Praise him in the height!
