Oaks of Righteousness ( by Fenny West)

Oaks of Righteousness 


Oaks of Righteousness 
Shall Stand in the fierce wind
Through His great faithfulness 
Abounding Grace, they will find. 

They will grow tall and strong
Like Cedars of Lebanon. 
At night they’ll have a song
To cheer those that mourn. 

They are trees of righteousness. 
His treasured possession 
They are watered by the Lord 
In famine or recession. 

They will never perish

In all they do they’ll flourish.

They will always be the head

And at no time the tail.

In all they do they’ll forge ahead.

They will prevail and never fail.

Oaks of righteousness

Are trees of righteousness of a fruitful field.

That will glow and grow into a forest.


21   Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.Isa60:21-22

12   The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13   Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14   They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. Ps92:12-15

17   No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.


15   Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

3     To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
