Blessing of the Barn and the Stored Harvest

O Lord, Almighty God, Thou dost not cease to give many riches in the dew that falls from heaven, and nourishment for life in fertility of the soil. We give thanks to Thy most gracious majesty for the fruits of the field which we have harvested, and we pray that Thou wouldst bless and preserve these fruits which we have received from Thy hand; grant us, whom Thou hast filled with these gifts, that we may glory in Thy protection and praise Thy mercy forever, and so having received (enjoyed) temporal gifts we may not lose those that are eternal. Translated by Most Reverend J. H. Schlarman Bishop of Peoria
