We plough the fields and scatter, 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 grain,
The breezes and the sunshine,
And soft, refreshing rain.
All good gifts around us....
Are sent from heaven above...
So thank the Lord,
O thank the Lord,
For all his love
We thank thee then, O Father,
For all things bright and good,
The seed time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food.
No gifts have we to offer,
For all thy love imparts,
But that which thou most desirest, our humble, thankful hearts
All good gifts around us.....
Are sent from heaven above,
So thank the Lord, O thank the Lord
for all His love
Have a blessed 2010 full of sure simple pleasures. Give and laugh more, fill your lives with the love of Christ and give all thanks to him.
