Poems To Enjoy:

The Blessed Man is Like a Tree

"Blessed is that man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green: and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit." Jeremiah 17:7,8

Blessed is the man, indeed,

Sees the Lord is all his need.

Yes, it surely is a must,

That he put in Christ his trust.

His position, it shall be,

As so spreadeth out a tree,

By the river's cool flow,

And his roots from thither go.

By the river it shall be,

There for everyone to see,

And if by the river stands,

Shall fulfil the Lord's command!

So preoccupied shall be

With what God asks of the tree,

Shall not see the coming heat,

As the Lord's commands it meets!

For at last it shall present,

To the Lord as it was sent,

Leaves of lovely, lively green,

On it's branches shall be seen.

So indeed the blessed man,

Does just what he only can.

Finds the Lord his certainty,

Spreads himself as God's green tree!
