Come Ye Thankful People Come Lyrics & Chords

By Henry Alford & George J. Elvey

(D)Come, ye thankful (G)people, (D)come, raise the song of (G)harvest (D)home; all is (G)safely (A)gathered (D)in, ere the winter (E)storms (A)begin. God our Maker (D)doth provide for our wants to (G)be supplied; (B)come to (Em)God's own (A)temple, (D)come, (G)raise the (D)song of (A)harvest (D)home. All the world is God's own field, fruit as praise to God we yield; wheat and tares together sown are to 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. For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take the harvest home; from the field shall in that day all offenses purge away, giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast; but the fruitful ears to store in the garner evermore. Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring thy final harvest home; gather thou thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin, there, forever purified, in thy presence to abide; come, with all thine angels, come, raise the glorious harvest home.
