Most gracious God, you crown the year with your goodness.
We praise you that you have ever fulfilled your promise
that, while earth remains, seedtime and harvest shall not cease.
We bless you for the order and constancy of nature,
for the beauty of earth and sky and sea,
and for the providence that year by year supplies our need.
We thank you for your blessing
on the work of those who plowed the soil and sowed the seed,
and have now gathered in the fruits of the earth.
And with our thanksgiving for these blessings,
accept our praise, O God,
for the eternal riches of your grace in Christ our Lord;
to whom, with you, O Father, and the Holy Spirit,
be all glory and honor and worship, for ever and ever. Amen.
