1 Now, Lord, the heavenly seed is sown,
Be it thy servant's care
Thy heavenly blessing to bring down,
By humble fervent prayer.
2 In vain we plant without thine aid,
And water too in vain;
Lord of the harvest, God of grace,
Send down thy heavenly rain.
3 Then shall our cheerful hearts and tongues
Begin this song divine;
"Thou, Lord, hast given the rich increase
And be the glory thine."
