Blessing of seeds (East African Hymn)

An East African hymn used at seed consecration service

Seed we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless them, O Lord!
Gardens we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless them, O Lord!
Hoes we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless them, O Lord!
Knives we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless them, O Lord!
Hands we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless them, O Lord!
Ourselves we bring
Lord, to thee, wilt thou bless us, O Lord!
