1Heavenly Father, God alone,
Lo! Before Thy mercy-seat
We present Thee with Thine own,
Laying it before Thy feet:
Lord of mercy and of grace,
Hear from Heaven Thy dwelling-place.
2Joy is here; but joy will go
Faster than these fruits decay,
And the life of man below
Buds, and blooms, and fades away:
Lord of mercy and of grace,
Hear from Heaven Thy dwelling-place.
3Summer days are past and gone,
Autumn sunshine will not last,
And bright moments, one by one
Drop away into the past:
Lord of mercy and of grace,
Hear from Heaven Thy dwelling-place.
4Thanks we give: and yet we pray
In our Harvest Festival,
Teach us all to live today,
For the Day which comes to all:
Lord of mercy and of grace,
Hear from Heaven Thy dwelling-place.
5When the Master on that Morn,
With His Harvesters shall come,
And shall gather in His corn,
For the last great Harvest-Home:
Lord of mercy and of grace,
Hear from Heaven Thy dwelling-place.
6And the Angels reap the wheat,
And bind up the ears of gold,
Yielding fruit about His feet
Fifty and a hundredfold:
Bear these sheaves, O Lord of Grace,
Into Heaven Thy dwelling-place! Amen.
Philippians1:4Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
