496. Lord, to You Immortal Praise

1 Lord, to you immortal praise
For the love that crowns our days;
Bounteous Source of ev'ry joy,
Let your praise our tongues employ.
All to you, our God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow.

2 All the plenty summer pours;
Autumn's rich, abundant stores,
Flocks that whiten all the plain,
Yellow sheaves of ripened grain:
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

3 Peace, prosperity, and health,
Private bliss and public wealth,
Knowledge with its gladd'ning streams,
True religion's holier beams:
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

4 As your prosp'ring hand has blest,
May we give you of the best
And by deeds of kindly love
For your mercies grateful prove,
Singing thus through all our days:
"Lord, to you immortal praise."
