Representative Text

1 Bearing the fruit of the Spirit,
Gentleness, meekness and love,
Thus we are following Jesus
Up to the mansions above.

Refrain:
Scattering blessings and sunshine,
Cheering the sad and the lone,
Then when the Master shall call us,
Sure of a glad welcome home.

2 Casting out all evil passions,
Envy and hatred and strife,
Walking with Jesus in spirit,
Pure in our everyday life. [Refrain]

3 Helping to bear others’ burdens,
Heeding the law of our God;
Thus would He teach us to follow
Pathways our dear Savior trod. [Refrain]

4 Sending our prayers and our praises
Up to our Father on high;
Sowing the seed in our weakness,
Reaping will come by and by. [Refrain]
