To bless the earth, God send­eth
From His abun­dant store
The wa­ters of the spring­time,
Enriching it once more.
The seed by Him pro­vid­ed
Is sown o’er hill and plain,
And with the gen­tle show­ers
Doth bless the spring­ing grain.

The year with good He crown­est,
The earth His mer­cy fills,
The wil­der­ness is fruit­ful,
And joy­ful are the hills;
With corn the vales are co­vered,
The flocks in pas­tures graze;
All na­ture joins in sing­ing
A joy­ful song of praise.
