Lyrics

Praise to God, immortal praise,
For the love that crowns our days;
Bounteous source of every joy,
Let thy praise our tongues employ:

For the blessings of the fields,
For the stores the garden yields,
Flocks that whiten all the plain;
Yellow sheaves of ripened grain,

All that spring with bounteous hand
Scatters o'er the smiling land,
All that liberal autumn pours
From its rich o'erflowing stores.

These, to thee, O God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow;
And for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
