Deuteronomy 16:13–17 (Listen)

The Feast of Booths

13 “You shall keep the Feast of Booths seven days, when you have gathered in the produce from your threshing floor and your winepress. 14 You shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your towns. 15 For seven days you shall keep the feast to the LORD your God at the place that the LORD will choose, because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.

16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God at the place that he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Booths. They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed. 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you.

13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine: 14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates. 15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice. 16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty: 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.(KJV)

1. We praise Thee, O God, our Redeemer, Creator, 
In grateful devotion our tribute we bring; 
We lay it before Thee, We kneel and adore Thee, 
We bless Thy holy name, glad praises we sing. 

2. We worship Thee, God of our fathers, we bless Thee; 
Through life’s storm and tempest our Guide hast Thou been; 
When perils o’ertake us, Escape Thou wilt make us, 
And with Thy help, O Lord, our battles we win. 

3. With voices united our praises we offer, 
To Thee, great Jehovah, glad anthems we raise. 
Thy strong arm will guide us, Our God is beside us, 
To Thee, our great Redeemer, fore’er be praise.
