You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land.
There your people finally settled, and with a bountiful harvest, O God, you provided for your needy people.
The Lord gives the word, and a great army brings the good news.
Enemy kings and their armies flee, while the women of Israel divide the plunder.

Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Interlude
