    They don’t return without watering the ground.
They cause the plants to sprout and grow.
    And the plants make seeds for the farmer.

    They will not return to me empty.
They make the things happen that I want to happen.

The mountains and hills will burst into song before you.
    All the trees in the fields will clap their hands.
