142R We Plow the Fields and Scatter


1. We plow the fields, and scat-ter the good seed on the land,
but it is fed and wa-tered by an al-migh-ty hand;
God sends the snow in win-ter, the warmth to swell the grain,
the bree-zes and the sun-shine, and soft re-fresh-ing rain.

2. God is the heaven-ly mak-er of all things near and far,
who paints the way-side flow-er, who lights the even-ing star;
The winds are led by God's hand, from whom the birds are fed;
Much more to us, God's chil-dren, who bes-tows dai-ly bread.

3. We thank you, then, O Sove-reign, for all things bright and good,
the seed time and the har-vest, our life, our health, and food;
No gifts have we to of-fer, for all your love im-parts,
but that which you do de-sire, our hum-ble, thank-ful hearts.
