Amid the wilderness
And my own fruitlessness
I find in Christ the apple tree
Whose fruit refreshes me.

The Christian finds it fine
To gaze upon the Vine;
He sees it perfectly grow up
To give wine for God's cup.

Not only that, but God
Brings life to Aaron's rod:
The almond buds, bears blooms, then fruit
From this resurgent Shoot.

The Tree of Life will bear
Fresh fruit for men to share:
Its monthly produce will suffice
To flavour paradise!
