Psalter 171

Verse 1
Thy might sets fast the mountains;
Strength girds Thee ever more
To calm the raging peoples
And still the oceans roar.
Thy majesty and greatness
Are thro' all lands confessed,
And joy on earth Thou sendest
Afar, from east to west.

Verse 2
To bless the earth Thou sendest
From Thy abundant store
The waters of the spring time,
Enriching it once more.
The seed by Thee provided
Is sown o'er hill and plain,
And Thou with gentle showers
Dost bless the springing grain.

Verse 3
The year with good Thou crownest,
The earth Thy 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.
