Like A Tree Planted By The Water

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Lamentations 32:2


Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord.

And whose confidence is in Him.

He has no worries in a year of drought.

For fruit will appear on each limb.


Like a tree planted by the water,

That sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when it gets hotter.

And its leaves are forever green.


To the man who honours the Lord, and will do.

All that is good in God's eyes.

The Lord's unfailing love shall continue.

Fresh as the morning; sure as sunrise.


To the man who reveres the Lord's name,

The sun of righteousness will rise.

With healing in its wings.

As it takes unto the skies.
