(Inspired by Psalm 65)
We lift up our praise to You, O God, whose mercy is never-failing! We thank You for not just forgiving us for our manifold faults, but blessing us abundantly. You protect us like a mother bird hovers over her chicks; your wings spread over us to shade and shield us from harm. You have placed us in a land you have made to bloom; our hills and fields are cloaked in fruit and grain. You have blessed us beyond imagining, and we raise hymns of praise as we proclaim our awe. You make our desert hearts to blossom: let us respond in kind to each other. Knowing You are always with us, we ask that You look with favor on these, your servants, today.
