Wir Pflügen Und Wir Streuen

(English Translation)


We plow the fields and scatter

the good seed on the land,

but it is fed and watered

by God's almighty hand.

He sends the snow in winter,

the warmth to swell the grain,

the breezes and the sunshine,

and soft refreshing rain.


Refrain:

All good gifts around us

are sent from heav'n above;

then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord

for all his love.


He only is the Maker

of all things near and far;

he paints the wayside flower,

he lights the evening star;

the wind and waves obey him,

by him the birds are fed;

much more to us, his children,

he gives our daily bread.


Refrain:

All good gifts around us

are sent from heav'n above;

then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord

for all his love.


We thank you, then, O Father,

for all things bright and good:

the seed-time and the harvest,

our life, our health, our food;

no gifts have we to offer

for all your love imparts,

but that which you desire now:

our humble, thankful hearts!


Refrain:

All good gifts around us

are sent from heav'n above;

then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord

for all his love.




Lieber Vater, lehr mich danken

(English Translation)


Beloved Father, teach me to thank you,

Teach me to thank you for your Grace.

The songs of Heaven lie in my heart

Even when life’s path is hard.

Teach me to thank you in every way.

The Father’s eyes look with joy upon me here Beloved Father (x2), teach me to thank you completely!


Thank you Father, ever I thank you,

From the depths of my heart, in joy or sorrow, right until the day I die.

Teach me, God, to thank you in all ways,

Gladly in the mercy of your hands, Until I am in the heavenly land.

Beloved Father (x2), teach me to thank you completely!
