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.
