Hope in the Lord (Psalm 1)

You who hope in the Lord
are like a sapling
planted by a running stream
of fresh water.
Your roots will grow deep.
Your branches will gain strength.
The moist soil will nourish you.
There will be no hunger,
nor thirst.

You who hope in the Lord
will bear fruit
in the proper seasons.
Your leaves will maintain
a deep hue of color.
Rays of the sun will shine through
your branches,
illuminating the ground below
with gentle patterns of light.

Trust in Him,
be not like the chaff
blowing in the wind.
Hold firm
to the promise revealed.
Find your delight
in what the Lord has said
and let evil
plot its own demise.
