Habakkuk 3:17-19, NLT

17Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

even though the olive crop fails,

and the fields lie empty and barren;

even though the flocks die in the fields,

and the cattle barns are empty,

18yet I will rejoice in the Lord!

I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!

19The Sovereign Lord is my strength!

He makes me as surefooted as a deer,*3:19 Or He gives me the speed of a deer.

able to tread upon the heights.
