O Lord, Almighty God, Thou dost not cease to give many riches in the dew that falls from heaven,
And nourishment for life in fertility of the soil. We give thanks to Thy most gracious majesty
For the fruits of the field which we have harvested; these fruits which we have received from Thy hand. Amen
