  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 blessings of the field,
    All the stores the gardens yield;
    All the fruits in full supply,
    Ripened 'neath the summer sky;
    All that spring with bounteous hand
    Scatters o'er the smiling land;
    All that liberal autumn pours
    From her rich o'er flowing stores:
  3. These to thee, our God, we owe,
    Source whence all our blessings flow;
    And for these our souls shall raise
    Grateful vows and solemn praise.
    Come,then, thankful people, come,
    Raise the song of harvest home;
    Come to God's own temple, come,
    Raise the song of harvest home. Amen.
