For the vine’s exalted juice,
For the gen’rous olive’s use;
 
3 Flocks that whiten all the plain,
Yellow sheaves of ripen’d grain,
Clouds that drop their fat’ning dews,
Suns that temp’rate warmth diffuse;
 
4 All that spring with bounteous hand
Scatters o’er the smiling land;
All that lib’ral autumn pours
From her rich o’erflowing stores;
 
5 Thanks to thee our God we owe;
Source from whence all blessings flow!
And for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
 
Hymn 13 • Guide us, O thou great Jehovah
HYMN 13. P. M.
 
1 Guide us, O thou great Jehovah,
Saints upon the promis’d land;
We are weak but thou art able,
Hold us with thy powerful hand:
Holy Spirit,
Feed us till the Savior comes.
 
2 Open, Jesus, Zion’s fountains:
Let her richest blessings come; [p. 19]
