Reap Me The Earth

*

Reap me the earth as a harvest to God,
gather and bring it again,
all that is his, to the maker of all;
lift it and offer it high.

Bring bread, bring wine,
give glory to the Lord;
whose is the earth but God’s,
whose is the praise but his?

Go with your song and your music, with joy,
go to the altar of God;
carry your offerings, fruits of the earth,
work of your labouring hands:

Gladness and pity and passion and pain,
all that is mortal in man,
lay all before him, return him his gift,
God, to whom all shall go home.
