Habakkuk, iii: 17–18.

THOUGH bare of bloom the broad-leafed fig
And vines no luscious clusters show,
And toil that sinewed arms bestow
On olive erst with berries big
Shall fail, and fields shall yield no meat,        5
Nor herds more in the stables low,
Nor woolly flocks in fold shall bleat,
I yet with joy the Lord shall greet,
With song my Strength and Saviour praise,
Who renders like to hinds my feet        10
And doth me to high places raise.
