Deus Robur Meus.

OAK, with thy straightness,
Oak, with thy wholeness,
Oak, with thy brightness,
Hearten me! Aid me!
Rooted in passionate earth,
Crowned in ethereal blue,
Breathing ineffable love,
Shelter me! Shade me!

With thy sweet strength,
With thy cool peace,
With thy green joy,
Touch me and thrill me!
Spirit of patience,
Spirit of courage,
Spirit of wisdom,
Cover me! Fill me!

Balm-giving oak,
Force-giving oak,
Self-giving oak,
Inspire and elate me!
Lovely green tree of life,
Happy tall tree of hope,
Holy great tree of good,
Oh, consecrate me!
Deus Robur Meus.
