Lord, Help Me Be Like That Tree

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NLT)
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. 
He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” 

Lord, Help Me To Be That Tree  (© S.D. Harden)

Lord, help me be the flexible tree~ 

That bends its boughs in adversity,

Through winds of trial and suffering,

That hides itself away in Thee

And trusts when assailed by enemies; 

Whose limbs bow humbly in chastening, 

Who will not break but find the Stream 

Of God to drink, it's roots will cling,

It's roots dig deep into that Stream... 

It's leaves are ever full and green,

It bears its fruit to Christ it's King...

In every season it will sing...

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree.

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree~

That tree that bows and bends to Thee; 

For the tree that bows and bends the knee 

Will bear the fruit that honors Thee,

That lasts throughout Eternity...

Oh Lord, help me to be that tree. 

Heavenly Father, may we ever cling to Your promises in Your word that You are always with us in every season of our lives. No matter what challenge we may ever face on our path, You will be right there to see us through as we put our faith, hope, and trust in You. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.
