76. O God, with thanks unfeigned

1 O God, with thanks unfeigned
We bless thee for thy word;
We praise thee for the joyful news
Which our glad ears have heard.

2 Oh, may we treasure well
The counsels that we hear,
Till righteousness and holy joy
In all our hearts appear.

3 Water the sacred seed,
Oh, may its growth increase;
May neither fowls nor rocks nor throns
Prevent the fruits of peace.

4 And though we sow in tears,
The reaping time will come;
Angels will gather in our sheaves
At earth's great harvest home.
