For Summer
Heat and light,
Day overtakes night,
Warm air settles over the earth,
The land vibrant with growth.
Your creatures build and thrive.
Days, alive with motion.
Nights, bursting with wonder.
Bless this day, G-d of seasons,
Bless the summer with energy, vitality and prosperity
So that all of Your creatures
May enter the coming seasons
With the fullness of Your bounty.

G-d of time and space,
May this season be a blessing and a teacher.
Make me like the land,
Fertile with sustenance and beauty.
Make me like the night sky,
Fertile with radiance and splendor.
Bless my days with service
And my nights with rest.
Make me like a new day,
Full of hope and promise.
