1. As saints of old their first fruits brought
    Of orchard, flock, and field
    To God the giver all good,
    The source of bounteous yield;
    So we today first fruits would bring:
    The wealth of this good land,
    Of farm and market, shop and home,
    Of mind, and heart, and hand.
  2. A world in need now summons us
    To labor, love, and give;
    To make our life an offering
    To God, that all may live.
    The Church of Christ is calling us
    To make the dream come true:
    A world redeemed by Christ-like love;
    All life in Christ made new.
  3. In gratitude and humble trust
    We bring our best today,
    To serve Your cause and share Your love
    With all along life’s way.
    O God, who gave yourself to us
    In Jesus Christ Your Son,
    Teach us to give ourselves each day
    Until life’s work is done.
