Simple and prayerful

A simple and effective prayer, sung in parts, which recognizes that the yield of our labor is through the grace of God, thus we offer thanks with a symbolic return of gifts to our Creator. I like the idea of a gathering from the four corners of the earth. Very visual. "For those not here" could be those who could not attend the gathering, or those who have passed from life – in advanced age or much too soon (including our precious babies killed in utero). "God, keep us all safe so that we may labor in the field, bear good fruit and sing Your praises."

Thank you Richard.

Amen. Yes, we pray for them all. Thank you for analysing the Hymn and providing your review here.

Thank you too for making available this forum where music - and prayer in the form of music - can be shared.


To God, Glory; to man, none.
