CHRIST, THE FIRST-FRUITS OF THE HOLY HARVEST FIELD

01 Jun

Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits
of the holy harvest field,
which will all its full abundance
at his second coming yield;
then the golden ears of harvest
will their heads before him wave,
ripened by his glorious sunshine,
from the furrows of the grave.

Christ is risen, we are risen;
shed upon us heavenly grace,
rain, and dew, and gleams of glory
from the brightness of thy face;
that we, with our hearts in Heaven,
here on earth may fruitful be,
and by angel-hands be gathered,
and be ever, Lord, with thee.
– from “Alleluia, alleluia, Hearts to Heaven”
by Christpher Wordsworth
