It’s Sunday

LIBERTY, October 14, 2012 – It’s Sunday and it’s the Fall of the year. It’s the time of harvest and the Hymn, “Come Ye Thankful People Come,” is just such a song.

Enjoy this recording below of this song by George J. Elvery, 1816-1893 with lyrics by Henry Alford, 1810-1871. The hymn tune is St. George’s Windsor.


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.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
 Wheat and tares together sown unto 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.

For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
 From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away,
 Giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast;
 But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
 Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
 There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
 Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home.
