I'm really glad you identified these lyrics, I've been looking for them for ages. The tune we sang at Invicta Road Infant School, Greenwich was Stracathro which is in the English Hymnal and other hymn books.

We sang this hymn at harvest time, at my primary school in Gorleston on sea. Thanks sooo very much for putting it on the internet. It brings back so many happy memories, and it is such a lovely hymn.

Oh this takes me back. I have been looking out for this hymn for a few years now. It too takes me back to my primary school years. We sang it at Wivelsfield Primary School, back in the 1970's.

I often start singing this song on dark blustery days, this was a hymn we sang when I was at Elford Primary School in the mid 1960's and my sisters and brothers before me and my mum and her sisters & brothers. What happy schoolday memories.
