We plough the fields, and scatter
Tune: Wir pflϋgen  
Metre: 7676 D and refrain  

 

We plough the fields, and scatter

The good seed on the land,

But it is fed and watered

By Godís almighty hand;

He sends the snow in winter,

The warmth to swell the grain,

The breezes and the sunshine

And soft refreshing rain.

            All good gifts around us

  Are sent from heaven above;

  Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord,

  For all his love.

 

He only is the Maker

Of all things near and far;

He paints the wayside flower,

He lights the evening star;

The winds and waves obey him,

By him the birds are fed;

Much more to us, his children,

He gives our daily bread.

 

We thank thee then, O 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.
