The Army and Navy Hymnal/Readings/Thanks for Material Blessings
THANKS FOR MATERIAL BLESSINGS
OGIVE thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his loving-kindness endureth for ever.
To him who alone doth great wonders; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever:
To him that by understanding made the heavens; for his lovingkindness endureth forever:
To him that spread forth the earth above the waters; for his loving kindness endureth for ever:
To him that made great lights; for his lovingkindness endureth
The sun to rule by day; for his lovingkindness endureth for ever;
The moon and stars to rule by night;
For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.
THOU makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it, thou greatly enrichest it;
The river of God is full of water:
Thou providest them grain when thou hast so prepared the earth.
Thou waterest its furrows abundantly; thou settlest the ridges thereof: thou makest it soft with showers;
Thou blessest the springing thereof. Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness; and the hills are girded with joy.
The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing.
FOR the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,
And for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, and for the precious things of the growth of the moons,
And for the chief things of the ancient mountains,
And for the precious things of the everlasting hills,
And for the precious things of the earth and the fulness thereof,
Praise ye the Lord.
