When the pressures of life heat up,

And you wonder how much you can take

 

When the winds of blame howl

And the lighting of contempt strikes

 

When the cold smog of apathy chokes

And the storms of disrespect shake you to your core

 

Even when careless words beat you up and tear you down

Stand firm and do not lose heart

 

Send your roots deep and do not fear

Drink deeply of Living Water

And bring forth your strength without fail

 

Be the tree, my son

Deeply rooted through the wind and the rain

 

Through the sun and the drought

Be the tree, deeply rooted
