You care for the land and water it;
You enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
To provide the people with grain,
For so you have ordained it.
You drench its furrows
And level its ridges;
You soften it with showers
And bless its crops.
|You crown the year with your bounty;
And your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the desert overflow;
The hills are clothed with gladness.
The meadows are covered with flocks
And the valleys are mantled with grain;
They shout for joy and sing.
Psalm 65: 9-13
