Perhaps the text here alludes to a similar custom.

Return to us, God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine,
"The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth,
Look down from heaven and see, from your lofty throne, holy and glorious. Where are your zeal and your might? Your tenderness and compassion are withheld from us.
