This combination of Alford's "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come" (first verse with altered fifth line), with Barbauld's "Praise to God, Immortal Praise" (second verse and first half of third verse) was first published by Hartshorne in his 1915 hymnal The Book of Worship of the Church School.

1.Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.
2.All the blessings of the field,
All the stores the gardens yield;
All the fruits in full supply,
Ripened 'neath the summer sky;
All that spring with bounteous hand
Scatters o'er the smiling land;
All that liberal autumn pours
From her rich o'er flowing stores:
3.These to thee, our God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow;
And for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
Come,then, thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home. Amen.
