Where My hand hath spread around blessings on on My holy ground
Let no slothful man be found wasting what is given.
Where My hand hath spread around blessings on on My holy ground
Let no slothful man be found wasting what is given.

Hands to work and hearts to be oft in prayer, oh, bow the knee.
Unto such my blessings bring, as the dews of heaven.
