New Green Branch

Withering away because of sin,
Drying up because of iniquity,
The desert shrub that is this land
Will grow a new green branch
That will be the promised salvation
That will be our righteousness.
Listen no more to blowing winds
     who say the rains will come.
They only drain what little water
     you have left in your limbs.
Now on, look only to the latter rain
     and the new life it will bring.

Jeremiah 23:5-6
