Barren and lifeless I remain,
When will the gentle spring return,
And bid my graces grow again?

I faint and droop 'till thou appear;
Wilt thou permit thy plant to die?

With humble prayer, and patient faith,
'Till he reveals his gracious power,
Repose on what his promise saith.

6 He, by whose all commanding words,
Seasons their changing course maintain;
In every change a pledge affords,
That none shall seek his face in vain.
