Psalms 65:1-13


  • God’s care for the earth

    • “Hearer of prayer” (2)

    • ‘Happy is the one you choose’ (4)

    • God’s abundant goodness (11)

To the director. A melody of David. A song. Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion;+ We will pay our vows to you.+   O Hearer of prayer, to you people of all sorts* will come.+   My errors have overwhelmed me,+ But you cover over our transgressions.+   Happy is the one whom you choose and bring near
To reside in your courtyards.+ We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house,+ Your holy temple.*+
  You will answer us with awe-inspiring deeds+ of righteousness,
O God of our salvation;
You are the Confidence of all the ends of the earth+ And of those distant across the sea.
  You* firmly established the mountains by your power;
You* are clothed with mightiness.+
  You* calm the raging seas,+ The crash of their waves and the turmoil of the nations.+   The inhabitants of remote places will be awestruck by your signs;+ You will cause those from the sunrise to the sunset to shout joyfully.   You care for the earth,
Making it abundantly fruitful* and very rich.+ The stream from God is full of water;
You provide grain for them,+ For that is how you prepared the earth.
 You drench its furrows and level off its plowed soil;*
You soften it with showers of rain; you bless its growth.+
 You crown the year with your goodness;
Your tracks overflow with abundance.*+
 The pastures of the wilderness keep overflowing,*+ And the hills are clothed with joyfulness.+  The pastures are covered with flocks,
And the valleys* are carpeted with grain.+ They shout in triumph, yes, they sing.+
