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.
