Original text and translations
Let the people praise Thee, O God, let all the people praise Thee.
Then shall the earth her increase yield, and God shall give us His blessing.
The rain cometh down, and the snow cometh down from heaven, and returneth not thither,
but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud,
that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater.
O how great is Thy goodness, Thou fillest our garners with store. Alleluia, Amen.
The year is crowned with Thy goodness, to all flesh Thou givest food. Alleluia, Amen.
We praise Thee, O God.
All the earth doth worship Thee, the Father everlasting.
