FRUITFULNESS DESIRED




May I as a tree thatís fruitful,
Lord, within thy vineyard stand;
By thee planted, let my branches
All be nurtured by thy hand:
|: Let me flourish, :|
Yielding fruit at thy command.


From the blights, the wind and tempests,
Lord preserve with tender care;
Suffer not my leaf to wither,
Let it always green appear;
|: Till transplanted :|
I shall be, in climes more fair.


Soon the time shall come appointed,
When thou wilt thy plant remove;
may it in that land all fruitful,
be an object of thy love:
|: There from tempests, :|
It secure and safe shall prove.
