Litany for Water: We praise You, O God

Come, rejoice in the Lord,
who has refreshed the parched earth.
We praise you, O God.

Rejoice for the rain that falls by night,
and soaks at once into the dry ground,
causing half-dried-up roots to swell,
and the deep cracks in the earth to close.
We praise you, O God.

Rejoice for the great drops that fall at midday;
rejoice in the small streams,
singing on their way from the hills down into the valleys,
to make the rivers swell and fill the reservoirs
and supply the cities and irrigation channels with water.
We praise you, O God.

For the ground, for rain, for seeds and tools,
for strength in arms and backs,
for the will to work
and for creative minds.
We praise you, O God.
