May you be silent before the Lord
bowing before his throne as he sits
in his holy temple.
May you trust in His plan and authority,
quietly watching the works of his hand.
And even though the fig trees have no blossoms
and there are no grapes on the vine;
even though the olive crop fails
and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields
and the cattle barns are empty;
May you rejoice in the Lord
May you be joyful in God your Savior.
