562 – Come, Sing a Song of Harvest



1
Come, sing a song of harvest, Of thanks for daily food!
To offer God the first-fruits is old as gratitude.

2
Long, long ago, the reapers, before they kept the feast,
Put first-fruits in a basket, and took it to the priest.

3
Shall we, sometimes forgetful oh where creation starts,
With science in our pockets lose wonder from our hearts?

4
May God, the great Creator, to whom all life belongs,
Accept these gifts we offer, our service and our songs.

5
And lest the world go hungry while we ourselves are fed,
Make each of us more ready to share our daily bread.
