    [a]On that day—
The pleasant vineyard, sing about it!(A)
    I, the Lord, am its keeper,
    I water it every moment;
Lest anyone harm it,
    night and day I guard it.(B)
I am not angry.
    But if I were to find briers and thorns,
In battle I would march against it;
    I would burn it all.(C)
But if it holds fast to my refuge,
    it shall have peace with me;(D)
    it shall have peace with me.
