Representative Text

1 I am the vine, and ye are the branches,
Bear precious fruit for Jesus to-day;
The branch that in me no fruit ever beareth,
Jesus hath said, "He taketh away."

"I am the vine, and ye are the branches,
I am the vine, be faithful and true;
Ask what ye will, your prayer shall be granted;
The Father loved me, so I have loved thee."

2 Now ye are clean, thro' words I have spoken,
Abiding in me, much fruit ye shall bear;
"Dwelling in thee, my promise unbroken,
Glory in heaven with me ye shall share." [Refrain]

3 Yes, by your fruits the world is to know you,
Walking in love as children of day;
Follow your Guide, he passed on before you,
Leading to realms of glorious day. [Refrain]
