“The Seed That Falls (Psalm 65)” is the responsorial psalm for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary time, cycle A.
This is a song praising God for creation — but also draws parallels between planting seeds and planting the word of God in our hearts.

Sing the response twice at the start. At the end, you may choose to sing it twice again, or simply once since the response is a bit on the long side.

Also, don’t forget to slow down as you end.

I was trying to compose a responsorial psalm which could stand on its own as a communion or offertory song, therefore I wanted to to insert a stronger and longer melody into it. This is the result, which at times reminds me of “Shelter Me, O God” because of the long instrumental outro at the end of the response.
