"On What has Now been Sown" by John Newton, 1725-1807 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. On what has now been sown Thy blessing, Lord, bestow; The power is Thine alone To make it spring and grow. Do Thou in grace the harvest raise, And Thou alone shalt have the praise. 2. To Thee our wants are known, From Thee are all our powers; Accept what is Thine own And pardon what is ours. Our praises, Lord, and prayers receive And to Thy Word a blessing give. 3. Oh, grant that each of us Now met before Thee here May meet together thus When Thou and Thine appear And follow Thee to heaven, our home. E'en so, Amen, Lord Jesus, come!This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Marilyn F. Gardner and is in the public domain. You may freely distribute, copy or print this text.
