Blessed are you, who trust in the Almighty
and put your hope in God.
You are like a tree planted by the water,
that extends its roots to the river.
When heat comes, you do not fear,
your leaves remain green.
You do not grieve the year of drought
nor cease to bear fruit.
Blessed as you are,
go and struggle with the power of the Spirit
to break down all the walls!
Go in peace.
