Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: We plow the fields for sowing The good seed on the land; But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand. He sends the snow in winter, The warmth to swell the grains; The breeze and the sunshine, And soft refreshing rain.
Verse 2: He only is the Maker Of all things near and far; He paints the wayside flowers, He lights the evening star. The wind and waves obey Him; By Him the birds are fed; Much more to us His children He gives our daily bread.
Verse 3: We thank Thee, then, O Father, For all things bright and good; The seed time and the harvest, Our life, our health and food. Accept the gifts we offer, For all Thy love imparts, And, what Thou most desirest, Our humble, thankful hearts.
