Thanksgiving for God's Blessings

1For the leader. A psalm of David. A song.

I

2To you we owe our hymn of praise, O God on Zion; To you our vows* must be fulfilled, 3you who hear our prayers. To you all flesh must come y Is 66, 23 . * 4with its burden of wicked deeds. We are overcome by our sins; only you can pardon them. z Pss 32, 1–2; 78, 38; Is 1, 18 . 5Happy the chosen ones you bring to dwell in your courts. May we be filled with the good things of your house, the blessings of your holy temple!

6You answer us with awesome deeds* of justice, O God our savior, The hope of all the ends of the earth and of far distant islands. a Is 66, 19 . 7You are robed in power, you set up the mountains by your might. 8You still the roaring of the seas, b Pss 89, 10; 107, 29; Jb 38, 11; Mt 8, 26 . the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples. c Is 17, 12 . 9Distant peoples stand in awe of your marvels; east and west you make resound with joy. 10You visit the earth and water it,* make it abundantly fertile. d Lv 26, 4; Is 30, 23. 25; Jl 2, 22–23 . God's stream* is filled with water; with it you supply the world with grain. Thus do you prepare the earth: 11you drench plowed furrows, and level their ridges. With showers you keep the ground soft, blessing its young sprouts. 12You adorn the year with your bounty; your paths* drip with fruitful rain. 13The untilled meadows also drip; the hills are robed with joy. 14The pastures are clothed with flocks, the valleys blanketed with grain; they cheer and sing for joy. e Is 44, 23 .
