Bible: Psalm 65:9-13

65:9 You visit the earth and give it rain; 1 

you make it rich and fertile 2 

with overflowing streams full of water. 3 

You provide grain for them, 4 

for you prepare the earth to yield its crops. 5 

65:10 You saturate 6  its furrows,

and soak 7  its plowed ground. 8 

With rain showers you soften its soil, 9 

and make its crops grow. 10 

65:11 You crown the year with your good blessings, 11 

and you leave abundance in your wake. 12 

65:12 The pastures in the wilderness glisten with moisture, 13 

and the hills are clothed with joy. 14 

65:13 The meadows are clothed with sheep,

and the valleys are covered with grain.

They shout joyfully, yes, they sing.
