TREE PLANTED BY THE WATERS
Make me that tree planted* by the waters
To bear fruits in my season with Your grace
Leaves not withering while beauty scatters…
My God, prosper me along Your might’s brace.
Standing along waters for nourishment
I pray to be a tree offering shade
Refuge to ease away discouragement…
My God, uphold me with Your goodness-glade.
Like a tree welcoming birds to nestle
My life I devote to serve, reaching out
With great love showing Scripture’s epistle…
My God, keep me in Your water’s blest route.
*Psalm 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
