Suns that genial warmth diffuse,
All the plenty summer pours,
Autumn's rich o'erflowing stores:

Grateful vows and solemn praise.

Private bliss, and public wealth,
Knowledge with its gladdening streams,
Pure religion's holier beams :
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
