Psalm 65: The Seed that Falls on Good Ground (Guimont 2010)

Practicing the responsorial for this weekend, I was accompanied by chirping birds and my cousin Steve on weed whacker. A new percussionist for St. Matt's!

Refrain: The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.

1. You visit the earth, give it water; you fill it with riches. God's ever-flowing river brims over to prepare the grain.

2. And thus you provide for the earth: you drench its furrows; you level it, soften it with showers; you bless its growth.

3. You crown the year with your bounty. Abundance flows in your pathways; in pastures of the desert it flows. The hills are girded with joy.

4. The meadows clothed with flocks. The valleys are decked with wheat. They shout for joy; yes, they sing!

That was grand natural in nature... thank you Richard...

May the Holy Trinity Keep us
and our blessed tones...
