L: The mountains and the hills burst into song,
P: And all the trees of the field clap their hands.
L: The rain and snow come down from heaven.
P: They water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout,
L: Giving seed to the sower,
P: And bread to the eater.
All: So too, may God’s word go out and accomplish its purpose. Amen.
from Isaiah 55:10-13
