Psalm 65:1-13

To the director. A melody of David. A song. 65  For you there is praise—silence—, O God, in Zion;+ And to you the vow will be paid.+   O Hearer of prayer, even to you people of all flesh will come.+   Things of error have proved mightier than I am.+ As for our transgressions, you yourself will cover them.+   Happy is the one you choose and cause to approach,+ That he may reside in your courtyards.+ We* will certainly be satisfied with the goodness of your house,+ The holy place of your temple.+   With fear-inspiring things in righteousness you will answer us,+ O God of our salvation,+ The Trust of all the borders of the earth and those far away on the sea.+   He is firmly establishing the mountains with his power;+ He is indeed girded with mightiness.+   He is stilling the noise of the seas,+ The noise of their waves and the turmoil of the national groups.+   And the inhabitants of the uttermost parts will be afraid of your signs;+ The goings forth of the morning and evening you cause to cry out joyfully.+   You have turned your attention to the earth, that you may give it abundance;+ You enrich it very much. The stream from God is full of water.+ You prepare their grain,+ For that is the way you prepare the earth.*+ 10  There is a drenching of its furrows, a leveling off of its clods;+ With copious showers you soften it; you bless its very sprouts.+ 11  You have crowned the year with* your goodness,+ And your very tracks drip with fatness.+ 12  The pasture grounds of the wilderness keep dripping,+ And with joyfulness the very hills gird themselves.+ 13  The pastures have become clothed with flocks,+ And the low plains themselves are enveloped with grain.+ They shout in triumph, yes, they sing.+
