Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

“For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands” Psalm 92:4).

Come, ye thankful people, come,

Raise the song of harvest home;

All is safely gathered in,

Ere the winter storms begin.

God our Maker doth provide

For our wants to be supplied;

Come to God’s own temple come,

Raise the song of harvest home.

 

From Come, Ye Thankful People, Come by Henry Alford, 1844.
