In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Come, Ye Thankful People, Come


Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

You have crowned the year with Your bounty, And Your paths drip with fatness. Psalm 65:11

image

Come, ye thankful people, come—
Raise the song of harvest home:
All is safely gathered in
Ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied:
Come to God’s own temple, come—
Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field,
Fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown,
Unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear:
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come
And shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day
All offenses purge away;
Give His angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store
In His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
To Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin;
There, forever purified,
In Thy presence to abide:
Come, with all Thine angels come—
Raise the glorious harvest home.
