1 Thou visitest the earth with showers,
Thy boundless store supplies its need;
For fields enriched and well prepared
Thou dost provide the sower's seed.
2 The furrows where the seed is sown
Are softened by Thy gentle rain;
Thy gracious care and providence
Supply and bless the springing grain.
3 The year with goodness Thou dost crown,
Thy ways o'erflow with blessedness;
The hills and valleys, clothed with green,
Are joyful in their fruitfulness.
4 The pastures teem with flocks and herds,
The golden grain waves o'er the fields;
All nature, singing joyfully,
Her tribute of thanksgiving yields.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
