November 2013 Hymn Study

The Ambleside Online Hymn rotation for November 2013 is a song called "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come".

I love this song, the song with the lyrics "Raise this song of Harvest Home", a very appropriate song for Thanksgiving:

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home.

I also really like to look for hymns that are singing TOO the Lord, not just ABOUT the Lord, to cover the same month with my son. So, for my son this month I will also be covering For the Beauty of the Earth:
