It may seem useless, growing there, A lonely apple tree; But even though it stands there bare- Hidden, no one can see- It brings joy to the Lord of Hosts And makes Him so happy. He loves this one as if the most (As any other tree). And like the trees, we are diverse; That I think we all see, And, in God’s sight, we aren’t worse Than those around us be. We should be thankful to our Lord That we are fully free, And we should pray to God the Word, Will not forsake us, He.
