A New Psalm

The Lord raises up the grain to become the bread on our table--
His Sun ripens the grape, and it is the wine of our delight.
He has raised up Man, fairest flower of His field,
And given him dominion over earth--
But even as wheat and grape are certain in their destiny,
The ending of our season is kept secret in His heart.
His blessings surround us on every hand--
But the evils of this world are never absent.

Lord, help us to be humble in the midst of plenty,
That all our days attest the wisdom of Thy creation.

Written years ago, but it seems appropriate at this time.
It would be interesting to see it translated "back" into Biblical Hebrew,
Greek and/or Latin.
