Grafted in Christ, the living vine

Representative Text

1 Grafted in Christ, the living vine,
This day, with one accord,
Ourselves, with humble faith and joy,

2 Join'd in one body may we be;
One inward life partake;
One be our heart; one heav'nly hope
In every bosom wake.

3 In pray'r, in effort, tears, and toils,
One wisdom be our guide;
Taught by one Spirit from above,
In Thee may we abide.

4 Then, when among the saints in light
Our joyful spirits shine,
Shall anthems of immortal praise,
O Lamb of God, be Thine.
