Blackberriies in the Hedges

Hi,
A topical one as it is harvets festival time - I remember as a child singing a hymn that went along the lines of
"Blackberries in the hedges are hanging ripe and good...
mushrooms in the meadows spring up around our feet"

I can't find it anywhere on the internet, it was a really nice hymn for children so would love to rediscover the words (the tune I can remember very well). Any help appreciated.

weirdly I went i looking for the whole hymn coz I was watching harvest 2013 on bbc2

I remember a little bit... maybe two verses

Blackberries in the hedges are hanging ripe and good
And nuts for winter storage are growing in the wood
How great and good our father's care to send us harvest everywhere

Apples in the orchard are plump and ripe to eat
And mushrooms in the meadow spring up around our feet
How great and good our father's care to send us harvest everywhere

I think that's how it goes- did you find it anywhere last year??

Hope this help :)
