|Thanks Be To God.|
For the Fruits of His Creation was written in 1970 by English Methodist minister and hymn writer, Fred Pratt Green. Over the years it has become a popular song during times of harvest or Thanksgiving. Green wrote the text specifically for the tune of East Acklam, and in particular for the final short phrase at the end of each stanza to be reinforced by the distinct melody of this beautiful hymn, written in 1957 by British composer and organist Francis Jackson. In the Liturgy of the Hours For the Fruits of His Creation is used during Ordinary Time for Evening Prayer.
