We bring not to our holy shrine,
Gath’rings like those of Palestine;
No golden sheaves, or olives green,
Or clustering grapes may there be seen;
No harvest-song is heard to swell,
Where Hebrews in their exile dwell;
Yet mourn not Israel for this,
Bring ye the fruits of righteousness!
Cultivate virtue’s holy ground,
Where pure philanthropy is found;
That human vine that in its folds,
With loving-clasp its neighbor holds.
Let peace its palmy branches spread,
And charity its balm-drops shed;
Meek faith unto the altar bring,
And tears for trespass-offering.
Fruits of the spirit consecrate
To God, supremely wise and great;
Reapers of grace shall ye then be,
In fields of immortality.
