Humble Tree

Look at the mighty and magnificent tree

With sweet fruits that all the creatures eat
As the fruits ripen its branches bend
For the Lord whose praise should never end

And look at the haughty, and arrogant man
Who debates God’s justice and ultimate plan
When the fruits of his labor start to show
The ignorant man’s pride starts to glow
Look at how the man stands so tall
Doesn’t bend with humility like the tree at all

Go tell the foolish man to bend and prostrate
Like the humble tree, who eloquently illustrates
That God is the power behind the fruits we grow
And it’s no credit to us of the sweetness they show
