Though The Fig Tree Shall Not Gilmour


Tho’ the fig tree shall not blossom,
Neither fruit be in the vine,
Yet I will rejoice in Jesus,
Son of man, and yet divine.

Refrain:
“Yet I will rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,”
Yet I will rejoice in his blessed word,
Yet I will rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
Will joy in the God of my salvation.

Tho’ the olive labor faileth,
And the fields shall yield no meat,
Yet I will rejoice in Jesus,
Find my needs in him complete. [Refrain]

Tho’ the flock may be unfolded,
And no herd be in the stall,
Yet I will rejoice in Jesus,
Praising him my all in all. [Refrain]

Tho’ the tempter may assail me,
Yet the Spirit’s sword is nigh,
Burnished brightly for the conflict,
Worn upon the victor’s thigh. [Refrain]
