Those who live at the ends of the earth are awed by Your signs;
You make the lands of sunrise and sunset shout for joy.
You take care of the earth and irrigate it;
You enrich it greatly with the channel of G-d full of water;
You provide grain for men, for so do You prepare it.
Saturating its furrows, leveling its ridges,
You soften it with showers,
You bless its growth.

There is the sea, vast and wide,
with its creatures beyond number,
living things, small and great. . . .
All of them look to You
to give them their food when it is due. . . .
May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
and the Lord rejoice in His works.
Tehillim/Psalms 104.25, 27, 31
Why so downcast, my soul,
why disquieted within me?
Have hope in G-d;
I will yet praise Him,
my ever-present help, my G-d.
I will be to Israel like dew;
He shall blossom like the lily,
He shall strike root like a Lebanon tree. . .
Not always shall the needy be ignored,
nor the hope of the afflicted forever lost.
