Rejoice, you cedars of Lebanon, and cypress, juniper, and every evergreen;
~~delight, you every-season growing trees:
For you lift fragrance from a rocky cliff,
~~and you send incense from a sandy ancient land.
You stretch your sleeves beyond the magi;
~~you raise your shadow over Solomon.
You ever form a warm light, herbed bowl, and shelter;
~~you sing an everlasting green-winged song of healing.
Be glad the Lord has written your wonders in His book:
~~be ever happy He has made your virtues like His word.
