Praise awaits you, our God,
to you our promises are fulfilled.
You answer prayer.
You ordained our freedom.
We come to you.
When we are overwhelmed by sins,
you forgive us.
Blessed are those you choose
and bring to live with you.
Your hope reaches the ends of the earth
and the farthest seas.
You formed the mountains by your power.
You are armed with strength.
You still the roaring seas,
the roaring waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
You inspire songs of joy.
You care for the land and water it;
you enrich it abundantly.
You fill our streams with water
you provide grain,
for so you ordained.
You ordained the freedom of your land, and
You drench our land with soft showers
and bless its crops.
Crown our year with your abundant grace.
Clothe us with your gladness.
Give us reason to shout for joy and sing.
