Psalm for the season

I love this Psalm any time of the year, but I especially like it in the fall, at harvest time. It seems to me to be especially appropriate at Thanksgiving. 

 

Psalm 65: 5-13

 

"By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us,

O God of our salvation. 

You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth,

And of the far-off seas;

Who established the mountains by His strength,

Being clothed with power;

You who still the noise of the seas,

The noise of their waves,

And the tumult of the peoples. 

They also who dwell in the farthest parts are afraid of Your signs;

You make the outgoings of the morning and evening rejoice.

 

You visit the earth and water it,

You greatly enrich it;

The river of God is full of water;

You provide their grain,

For so You have prepared it. 

You water its ridges abundantly,

You settle its furrows;

You make it soft with showers,

You bless its growth. 

 

You crown the year with Your goodness,

And Your paths drip with abundance. 

They drop on the pastures of the wilderness,

And the little hills rejoice on every side.

The pastures are clothed with flocks;

The valleys also are covered with grain;

They shout for joy, they also sing."
