Litany: The Gift of Water

When the poor and needy seek water,
I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.  Isaiah 41:17-18

Rejoice in the Lord,
For he 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.
