1. The fields to plow are many, Lord,
yet here you bid me tend.
May I see beauty in the work
of fences still to mend.

Oh, there are many fields to plow,
but you’ve not called me there.
Oh, there are many fields to plow,
but you have called me here.

2. Oh, keep my eyes from wandering where
a neighbor’s crop abounds,
but let me plant, then see the day
when bounty springs from ground.

Oh, there are many fields to plow…

3. Lord, bless these worn, these sweatstained tools
and bless these weary hands.
Lord, bless this work with hope, with joy,
with fruit from fertile land.

Oh, there are many fields to plow…
