O Lord, revive Thy work,
In the midst of the years make known,
And in wrath, remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2)

Thy presence hath scattered the mountains,
And bowed the perpetual hills. (Habakkuk 3:6)

The deep also uttereth his voice,
And lifteth himself up on high. (Habakkuk 3:10)

Thy glory covereth the heavens,
And the earth is full of Thy praise. (Habakkuk 3:3)

Thy ways are everlasting. (Habakkuk 3:6)

Although the fig tree shall not blossom,
Neither shall fruit be in the vine,
The labor of the olive shall fail,
And the field shall yield no store,
The flock shall be cut off from the fold,
And there shall be no herd in the stall,
Yet will I rejoice in the Lord,
And joy in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3:17-18)
