Hear us, Creator, as we pray
for those who till the soil;
Grant us a sense of growing worth,
give purpose to our toil.
The world has hungry people yet
our soils produce good grain.
God, use our skills and practiced arts
to take away our pain.
Our work, our knowledge, and our plans,
we offer for your use;
teach us to live in such a way
this land knows no abuse.
Our heritage of fields and herds
demands our thankful praise.
God, bless our farming enterprise,
the labour of our days.
Faithful with those who pioneered
these fertile lands we till,
we bless you God of humankind,
whose purpose guides us still.
