wednesday wallop #34 > psalm 65

this week we have psalm 65…there are a few rules broken, no repeated chorus – using the same words twice to rhyme – drums almost more like waves than beats on the verse and outro, but I am happy with it. This time of year we have such abundance and provision in the harvest, and just plain bounty – psalm 65 seemed an appropriate celebration to sing. I have a special guest this week on accordion, dave herring he did a great first pass interpretation – and I highly recommend him to any of you, pro through and through – have a look at his sites. It is now 11:56 – so I must quit talking – here is psalm 65

psalm 65

well praise awaits you Lord
you who hear prayer
when sin overwhelmed us
you forgive with care

blessed are those who
you choose to bring near
we’re filled with the good things
of your house of the temple cheered

you answer us with the awesome deeds of righteousness
Oh God our saviour
the hope of all the ends of the earth and the farthest seas
formed the mountains by your power
armed with strength for this very hour

you give the land water
enrich it great
you give the streams water
the people grain

for you have ordained it
drench the furrows and level its ridge
you soften it with showers
carts overflow with abundance

you still the roaring of the seas the roaring of the waves
and the turmoil of the nations
those living far away fear your wonders
where morning dawns and evening fades
you call forth songs of joy

you crown the year with bounty
the grasslands of the desert overflow
the meadows with flocks past counting
the hills with gladness grow
the valleys are mantled with grain
they shout for joy and sing

they shout for joy and sing
they shout for joy and sing
they shout for joy and sing now
they shout for joy and sing
they shout for joy and sing now
they shout for joy and sing
they shout for joy and sing
