The Spirit's fruits are peace and love

The Spirit's fruits are peace and love

Author: E. Cronenwett
Tune: WARNER (Rossini)
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The Spirit's fruits are peace and love,
And purity from heav'n above;
Grace, meekness, gentleness, and joy,
With goodness, new-born lives employ.

2 The Spirit makes life's pathway plain,
Imparts the grace that will sustain;
And grace its work in those will show
Who truly to the Spirit sow.

3 They that are Christ's have crucified
Their flesh with all its lusts and pride,
And seek in truth what they profess
And walk the paths of holiness.

4 Lord, fill with grace our wayward heart,
Nor let from us Thy Spirit part;
O save us from still hidden sin
And make our nature pure within.

5 That watchful, prayerful, sober, strong,
We grow the more as strifes prolong,
And of the Spirit reap at last
Eternal life, when strife is past.
