A Pool in the Wilderness

 

 

The Lord Everlasting,

The Creator of All,

Giveth strength to the weary,

And lifts them that fall.


 

Thy God is eer with thee,

So be not dismayed;

He will uphold thee

When thou art afraid.


 

When the poor are athirst,

He maketh rivers to flow;

And fountains in valleys

On them Hell bestow.


 

In wilderness dry

He placeth a pool

With well-springs of water,

Refreshing and cool.

 

 

Thou hast trusted the Lord

And walked in His ways;

May His water sustain thee

The rest of thy days!

 

 

Isaiah 40:28-31; 41:10,17,18
