All That the Earth Can Yield

Happy Thanksgiving Week!  I am grateful for the abundance in my life.  I am grateful for the thoughts in the beautiful hymns below that express the feelings of my heart.


All That the Earth Can Yield

An original hymn with words by Orson Scott Card and music by Mark Mitchell. Performed live on Friday, 13 November 2015 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Sheet music available in the book Hymns of Light by Orson Scott Card

All that the earth can yield,
All that seeds can hold,
Sheep within the fold;
Fruit of a heavy field
Or fallen from tree and vine:
They are already thine.

All that I think I own,
All within my hand,
House and plot of land;
All that I’ve reaped and sown
And all that the world calls mine:
They are already thine.

All of the dreams of youth,
Memories of age,
Life at every stage;
All that I know of truth
And all that is sweet and fine:
It is already thine.

All of the trust I’ve earned,
All the tears I’ve shed,
Hungry souls I’ve fed;
All of the love I’ve learned,
Lord: what is truly mine,
It is already thine.


This Orson Scott Card poem/song is new to me.  It echos the sentiment in one of my very favorite hymns in our LDS Hymnal:
