A Faithful Creator

He waters the hills with rain from the skies,
And plentiful grass and herbs He supplies,
Supplying the cattle, and blessing man's toil
With bread in abundance with wine and with oil.

Pardon for All

The Earth and the Fulness with Which It Is Stored

The earth and the fullness with which it is stored,
The world and its dwellers belong to the Lord;
For He on the seas its foundations has laid,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed,
And firm on the waters its pillars has stayed.
