This Tree

This tree is a tree of righteousness ;

A tree for the manifestation of His brightness;

Tree for the display of His goodness;

A tree for the unveiling of His fullness.

 

This tree is destined to be a forest;

Because in it God has a great interest;

A stark warning to all pests.

The zeal of the Lord will perform it with zest.

 

This tree is a tree of fruitfulness

Enamoured with God’s graciousness;

Imbued with the seal of holiness;

Undergirded by His loving-kindness.

 

This tree is planted in the house of God

And nourished in the courts of our Lord.

It feeds on the unadulterated word of God;

Is established and built up with the Word.

 

This tree will be known for its usefulness.

It will be renowned for its adroitness.

This tree will be courted for its peacefulness.

Yes, this tree will reign in the Land of Good Success.

1     Blessed is the man

     Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

       Nor stands in the path of sinners,

       Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2     But his delight is in the law of the LORD,

       And in His law he meditates day and night.

3     He shall be like a tree

       Planted by the rivers of water,

       That brings forth its fruit in its season,

       Whose leaf also shall not wither;

     And whatever he does shall prosper.

Ps1:1-3

7       ” Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,

       And whose hope is the LORD.

8       For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,

       Which spreads out its roots by the river,

       And will not fear when heat comes;

       But its leaf will be green,

       And will not be anxious in the year of drought,

       Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

Jer17:7-8

15     Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high,

       And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,

       And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.

Isa32:15
