Blessed be the LORD
Who makes good what is bad
And new what is old.
Who makes wisemen out of fools
And fools out of wisemen
That both may laugh at what good has been wrought.
The LORD who promises justice
Who kindles hope because of what has been
And what will surely be.
The desert He waters with thirsty men
And shows freely whom asks to see
this Love that weakens the knees of mighty men
and compels the adoration of princes.
