During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Notes

Scripture References: st. = Gal. 5:22-23 Based on the well-known listing of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23, this song is almost entirely a direct quotation from Scripture. The first three lines come directly from the New International Version, and the fourth serves as a summary of the Scripture passage. The text of this short Scripture song was prepared by Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4), the composer of the tune. (Other passages listing spiritual fruits are 2 Cor. 6:6; Eph. 4:2; 5:9; Col. 3:12-15.) Liturgical Use: Pentecost; weddings; any worship service that stresses Christian character and lifestyle. The song can function on its own as a chorus or response, or it can be used as a frame around another song (for example, 222). --Psalter Hymnal Handbook

Tune

The Fruit of the Spirit (Hernandez)


ROBERT (Grotenhuis)

Dale Grotenhuis composed ROBERT in 1985 as a setting for this text in the Psalter Hymnal. The tune is named after Grotenhuis's second son. A simple but effective chorus, it should not be rushed. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
