Although the vine its fruit deny,
The budding fig-tree droop and die,
No oil the olive yield;
Yet will I ever trust in God,
Yea, bend rejoicing to his rod,
Still by his mercy heal’d.
Though fields, in verdure late array’d,
By whirlwinds desolate be laid,
Or parch’d by scorching beam;
Still in the Lord shall be my trust,
My joy; for, though his frown be just,
His mercy is supreme.
Though from the fold the flock decay,
Though herds lie famish’d o’er the lea,
And round the empty stall;
My soul above the wreck shall rise,
Its better joys are in the skies,
Where God is all in all.
In God, my strength, howe’er distrest,
Still shall I hope, and calmly rest,
Nay, triumph in his love;
My ling’ring soul, my tardy feet,
Free as the hind he makes and fleet,
To speed my course above.
