You can cut all the flowers
but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
Lord, hear my prayer,
listen to my cry for mercy;
in your faithfulness and righteousness
come to my relief.
For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice;
the upright will see his face.
From the place where we are right
flowers will never grow
in the spring.
The place where we are right
is hard and trampled
like a yard.
But doubts and loves
dig up the world
like a mole, a plow;
and a whisper will be heard
in the place
where the ruined
house once stood.
The Lord’s justice will dwell in the desert,
his righteousness live in the fertile field.
The fruit of that righteousness will be peace;
its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places,
in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by
the endurance of those whom they oppress.
The Lord works righteousness and justice
for all the oppressed.
Stand up for what you believe in
even if you are standing alone.
