Thou vi­sit­eth the earth in love
And send­est show­ers from above,
Enriching all the land;
Thy streams ex­haust­less bless the field,
Preparing it the grain to yield
Provided by Thy hand.

The fur­rows, sown with liv­ing grain,
Are soft­ened by Thy gen­tle rain
The spring­ing corn to bless;
The year with good­ness Thou dost crown,
Rich gifts in mer­cy send­ing down
To cheer the wil­der­ness.

The hills and vales, with ver­dure clad,
Are girt with joy, the earth is glad,
New life is all abroad;
With feed­ing flocks the pas­tures teem,
With gold­en grain the val­leys gleam;
All na­ture prais­es God.
