In days of distress . . . "Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls . . ." One must learn . . . "Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. The Lord GOD is my strength."
