Representative Text

1 I am the vine, and ye are the branches,
Bear precious fruit for Jesus today;
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 pray'r shall be granted,
"The Father loved me, so I have loved you."

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 heav'n with me you shall share." [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]
