That we be strengthened

Feeble knees find life

Our glory restored

And an excellence given

Hope of a new dawn

When we behold him

Fear dismissed and —

Strength renewed, we leap

For joy and our desert rejoice

Sorrow replaced with blossom

Like a rose among thorns

We flourish, when our God

Makes our desert rejoice

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose [Isaiah 35:1]
