Psalm 65. Te decet hymnus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twelfth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. You are to be praised, O God, in Zion; *
    to you shall vows be performed in Jerusalem.
  2. To you that hear prayer shall all flesh come, *
    because of their transgressions.
  3. Our sins are stronger than we are, *
    but you will blot them out.
  4. Happy are they whom you choose and draw to your courts to dwell there! *
    they will be satisfied by the beauty of your house, by the holiness of your temple.
  5. Awesome things will you show us in your righteousness, O God of our salvation, *
    O Hope of all the ends of the earth and of the seas that are far away.
  6. You make fast the mountains by your power; *
    they are girded about with might.
  7. You still the roaring of the seas, *
    the roaring of their waves, and the clamor of the peoples.
  8. Those who dwell at the ends of the earth will tremble at your marvelous signs; *
    you make the dawn and the dusk to sing for joy.
  9. You visit the earth and water it abundantly; you make it very plenteous; *
    the river of God is full of water.
  10. You prepare the grain, *
    for so you provide for the earth.
  11. You drench the furrows and smooth out the ridges; *
    with heavy rain you soften the ground and bless its increase.
  12. You crown the year with your goodness, *
    and your paths overflow with plenty.
  13. May the fields of the wilderness be rich for grazing, *
    and the hills be clothed with joy.
  14. May the meadows cover themselves with flocks, and the valleys cloak themselves with grain; *
    let them shout for joy and sing.
