Week Three: Toxins
A Psalm of Thanksgiving
You visit the earth and water it,
you load it with riches;
God’s rivers brim with water,
to provide its grain.
This is how you provide it:
by drenching its furrows, by leveling its ridges,
by softening it with showers, by blessing the first-fruits.
You crown the year with your bounty,
abundance flows wherever you pass;
the desert pastures overflow;
the hillsides are wrapped in joy;
the meadows are dressed in flocks,
the valleys are clothed in wheat
what shouts of joy, what singing!
(extract from Psalm 65)
