Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vine;
Even though the olive crop fails,
and the fields lie empty and barren;
Even though the flocks die in the fields,
and the cattle barns are empty,
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD!
I will be joyful in the God of my salvation.
The Sovereign LORD is my strength!
He will make me as surefooted as a deer and
Bring me safely over the mountains.
