Awesome {deeds}

“By awesome deeds you answer us
O God of our Salvation

the hope of all the ends of the earth…
who stills the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples…

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 furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges,
softening it with showers,
and blessing its growth.

You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.
The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills gird themselves with joy…
the valleys deck themselves with grain, 

they shout and sing together for joy.

 Psalm 65:5-13

The line that strikes me, every time:
You visit the earth and water it.

I love that!
