Representative Text

1 Much of my life, Lord, seems to me
A striving to be good and not reality;
My heart is burdened, Lord, reveal, I pray,
If there is not for me some better way.

“I am the vine, ye are the branches;
He that abideth in Me and I in him
The same bringeth forth much fruit,
For without Me ye can do nothing.”

2 “Light from above first dawned on thee
When seeing My completed work on Calvary;
No other light can no thy pathway guide,
From hour to hour, My child, in Me abide!” [Refrain]

3 “Have I not pow’r thy soul to keep?
The Shepherd true is ever near to guard His sheep;
For I, the Christ, am truth and life and way,
Abide in Me for grace from day to day.” [Refrain]
