Springtime Psalm

Oh visit the earth,
ask her to join
the dance!
Deck her out
in spring showers,
fill the God-River
with living water.
Paint the wheat fields
golden.
Creation was
madefor this!
Drench the
plowed fields,
soak the dirt clods
With rainfall as
harrow and rake
bring her to
blossom and fruit.
Snow crown the peaks
with splendor,
scatter rose petals
down your paths,
All through the
wild meadows,
rose petals.
Set the hills
to dancing,
Dress the canyon walls
with live sheep,
A drape of flax
across the valleys.
Let them shout,and
shout,and shout!
Oh,oh
let them sing!
Psalm 65:9-13
(TMSG)
