1 Praise God for Harvest-Time,
sing till bells of heaven chime!
sing of his love revealed,
fruit of earth and ocean's yield:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!
   Good harvest safely stored
   praise our great Creator Lord!

2 Plough turning soil and stone
by the winter stormwinds blown;
green buds on bending bough,
life to bring us harvest now:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!...

3 God in the fertile land
joining with our human hand;
seed waking in the earth
stirring at the spring of birth:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!...

4 See in our food a sign
pointing to a love divine;
strength from a summer sky,
life bestowed as rainclouds fly:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!...

5 Lord, on your gifts we feed:
show us each the other's need;
give us the love to share
in our deeds and in our prayer:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!...

6 Lord, from your plenteous field
land and sea their harvest yield;
these, Lord, we bring to you,
gifts that by your goodness grew:
   Alleluia! Alleluia!...
