Fair Waved The Golden Corn Lyrics
1 Fair waved the golden corn
In Canaan’s pleasant land,
When, full of joy, some shining morn,
Went forth the reaper-band.
2 To God so good and great
Their cheerful thanks they pour;
Then carry to his temple-gate
The choicest of their store.
3 Like Israel, Lord, we give
Our earliest fruits to thee,
And pray that, long as we shall live,
We may thy children be.
4 Thine is our youthful prime,
And life and all its pow’rs;
Be with us in our morning time,
And bless our evening hours.
5 In wisdom let us grow,
As years and strength are giv’n,
That we may serve thy Church below,
And join thy saints in heav’n.
