Harvest – words to learn

IMG_1417

Here we are again- it’s that time of year, when I’m letting children know what songs they will be doing in the harvest celebration – date to be confirmed!

Ducklings – singing the choruses with the buddies  – year 5 item, please see below

Year 1

The Earth is Yours O God

The earth is yours, o God

You nourish it with rain

The streams and rivers overflow

The land bears seed again

 

The soil is yours, o God

The shoots are moist with dew

And ripened by the burning sun

The corn grows straight and true

 

The whole rich land is yours

For fodder, or for plough

And so for rain sun soil and seed

O God we thank you now

 

Year 2

When God Made the Garden of Creation

When God made the garden of creation, He filled it full of his love

When God made the garden of creation, he saw that it was good

There’s room for you and room for me and room for everyone

For God is a father who loves his children and gives them a place in the sun

When God made the garden of creation, He filled it full of his love

 

When God made the family of creation, He made it out of his love

When God made the family of creation, He saw that it was good.

There’s love for you and love for you and love for everyone

But man is so selfish, ignores his neighbour and seeks his own place in the sun

When God made the family of creation, He made it out of his love

 

Repeat the first verse

 

 

Year 3

Autumn Days

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled

and the silk inside a chestnut shell

Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled,

All these things I love so well

 

Chorus

So I mustn’t forget, no I mustn’t forget

To say a great big thankyou, I mustn’t forget

 

Clouds that look like familiar faces

And a winter’s moon with frosted wings

Smell of bacon as I fasten up my laces

And the song the milkman sings

 

Whipped up spray that is rainbow scattered

And a swallow curving in the sky

Shoes so comfy , though they’re worn-out and they’re battered

And the taste of apple pie

 

Scent of gardens when the rain’s been falling

And a minnow darting down a stream

Picked-up engine that’s been stuttering and stalling

And a win for my home team

 

Year 4

Morning Sun

Morning sun, morning sun, lights the day that’s just begun

Helping ev’ryone to see how beautiful the world can be

 

Midday sun, midday sun , all the warmest light has come

Brightening out lives below, helping all the plants to grow

 

Setting sun, setting sun, when the day is nearly done

Moving all the light away, Till you rise another day

 

Shining sun, shining sun, bringing life to everyone,

Helping all the world to see you shine on us eternally

 

Year 5 and Ducklings

Lord of the Harvest

 

Choruses – Duckings and year5

Verses Year 5 only

 

Chorus

Lord of the harvest, Lord of the field

Give thanks now to God in nature revealed

 

Give thanks for the sun, the wind and the rain

And thanks for the crops that feed us again

The corn safely cut is gathered inside

We thank you o Lord that you can provide

 

The trees ripe with fruit stand proud in the sun,

We gather them now that summer is gone

For yours is the wonder, yours is the pow’r

Yours is the glory of fruit and of flow’r

 

So in all plenty, help us to see

The needs all around, whatever they be

With food for the body, strength for the soul

It’s healing and caring, making them whole

 

Year 6

Think of a World

 

Think of a world without any flowers, think of world without any trees

Think of a sky without any sunshine, think of the air without any breeze

We thank you Lord for flowers, trees and sunshine

We thank you Lord, and praise your holy name

 

Think of a world without any animals, think of a field without any herd

Think of a stream without any fishes, think of a dawn without any bird

We thank you Lord for all your living creatures

We thank you Lord, and praise your holy name

 

Think of a world without any people, think of a street with no one living there

Think of a town without any houses, no one to love and nobody to care

We thank you Lord for families and friendships

We thank you Lord and praise your holy name
