OriginalOriginalOriginalOriginal Song Song Song Song We plough the fields and scatterThe good seed on the land,But it is fed and wateredBy God's almighty hand:He sends the snow in winter,The warmth to swell the grain,The breezes and the sunshine,And soft, refreshing rain.Refrain:All good gifts around usAre sent from heaven above;Then thank the Lord,O thank the Lord,For all his love.He only is the makerOf 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 offerFor all thy love imparts,And what thou most desirest,Our humble, thankful hearts.
