Verse 1:

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. 

Verse 2:
All the world is God's own field, 
fruit as praise to God we yield; 
wheat and tares together sown 
are to joy or sorrow grown; 
first the blade and then the ear, 
then the full corn shall appear; 
Lord of harvest, grant that we 
wholesome grain and pure may be. 

Psalm 100

 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:

be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;

and his truth endureth to all generations.
