The Presbyterian Hymnal: Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Songs


We Plow the Fields and Scatter

1.  We plow the fields and scatter
    The good seed on the land,
    But it is fed and watered
    By God's almighty hand;
    God sends the snow in winter,
    The warmth to swell the grain,
    The breezes and the sunshine,
    And soft, refreshing rain.

2.  You only are the Maker
    Of all things near and far;
    You paint the wayside flower,
    You light the evening star;
    The winds and waves obey You,
    By You the birds are fed;
    Much more to us, Your children,
    You give our daily bread.

3.  We thank You, Creator,
    For all things bright and good,
    The seed-time and the harvest,
    Our life, our health, our food;
    Accept the gifts we offer,
    For all Your love imparts,
    And what You most would welcome,
    Our humble, thankful hearts.
