Scripture: Psalm 65
1. To bless the earth God sends us From heaven's abundant store The waters of the springtime, Enriching it once more. 2. The seed by God provided Is sown o'er hill and plain, And then come gentle showers To bless the springing grain. 3. God crowns the year with goodness, The earth God's mercy fills, The wilderness is fruitful, And joyful are the hills. 4. With grain the fields are covered, The flocks in pastures graze; All nature joins in singing A joyful song of praise.
