The pious man is like a tree

            With amply-watered roots;

And in its season you may see

The richness of its fruits.

The righteous man is like a palm -

In freshness he disports

With dignity, without a qualm,

As planted in God’s courts.

Jehovah’s trees are satisfied,

            Planted by Him, and blest;

Through him each bird is now supplied
            With space to build its nest.
