The Palm Stands Tall

Psalm 92:12 “ the righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar on Lebanon.” A similar allusion is found in Song of Songs 7:7-8 “this your stature is like a palm tree,,, The palm tree is also associated with victory (Revelations 7:9)

The shady balm from midday heat,

Where branch relieves me from defeat,

Of noon tide sun that saps my mind

There stands the palm, where rest I find.

The branch of palm in children’s hands

Were waved in welcome where crowds stand;

To cheer the entrance of the king

With loud hosannas they did sing.

We too can sing with joyous hearts

Of righteousness that flows, that starts

To stand so tall like noble palm

With godly presence of your calm.

You comfort me - and help me thrive

New stature give and make alive. 

Lord, help me grow with deepened roots,

And bear for you new cherished fruit.

I an a champion palm tree! I know that I can sustain the hurricanes in life, because I paid the price and my roots of faith have grown down deep. John Di Lemme
