the olive crop fails
no grapes on the vine
no fig trees with buds
the skins have no wine
no cattle in stalls
the coop has no hen
the fields make no grain
no sheep in the pen
when bread is adversity
the water affliction
when day is calamity
the night no exemption . . .

stand firm in the faith
for deep in your soul
the Lord is your strength
to Him you can go
though grieving will come
there’s hope in the pain
for faith is your shield
and God will sustain
when everything fails
and reaping is nil
offer Him praise . . .
for He remains still
Hab 3:17-19
