Harvest Prayer
The yield arrives
Full and ripe,
Plump and ready,
Bursting in flavor,
Brimming with gifts
Of earth and sky.
Tree and grass,
Vine and root,
Blessings of the rich soil,
The gentle rain,
The constant sun.
Blessings from the flow of seasons,
And the work of our hands.
Blessings of abundance and grace,
The work of Your creation.

Blessed are You,
Adonai our G-d,
Source of Life,
Your bounty sustains us.
