~Come, Ye Thankful People, Come


       One of the finest of harvest hymns is that written by Dean Alford, “Come, ye thankful people, come.”

       When Alford was sixteen years old, he wrote these noble words upon the fly-leaf of his Bible: “I do this day, in the presence of God and my own soul, renew my covenant with God, and solemnly determine henceforth to become His, and to do His work as far as in me lies.”

       This harvest hymn first appeared in 1844, with the title, “After Harvest.” It was originally accompanied by the text, “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. (Psalm 126:6)



Come, Ye Thankful People, Come


(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.


(2) 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.


(3) For the Lord our God shall come

And shall take His harvest home;

From His field shall in that day

All offenses purge away,

Give His angels charge at last

In the fire the tares to cast,

But the fruitful ears to store

In His garner evermore.


(4) Even so, Lord, quickly come

To Thy final harvest home;

Gather Thou Thy people in,

Free from sorrow, free from sin:

There forever purified,

In Thy presence o abide;

Come, with all Thine angels, come,

Raise the glorious harvest home.
