Ps.24:1  The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Ps.145:15  The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
Ps.145:16  Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
God has promise, God has given
Golden sunshine, silver rain,
From His treasuries in Heaven,
For His waiting children's gain.
On the fields His gifts descending,
Gently touched the hidden grain;
So a golden increase ending,
In the harvest of the plain.
Bounteous Giver, bless His Name,
Joyfully, your thanks proclaim.
Ps.145:10  All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.
Praise ye the Lord. Amen.
