When We Abide

When we abide in Christ,
The True Vine,
We make our Father's
Countenance shine;
With Jesus,
Lasting fruit, we will bear
And God will answer
Our submitted prayers;
If we keep God's commands,
And remain in His love,
Our joy will be complete
As we love as Jesus loved;
Christ laid down His life
And He calls us chosen friends;
He speaks through His Spirit,
The Advocate, He sends
So that we will testify of Christ
Though persecution comes,
Having peace amidst trouble
For our Saviour's overcome
The world and death and sin;
Oh, how we need, to abide in Him
Based on John 15 & 16

Psalm 2

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in  vain   The rulers of the earth unite against the Lord   And against His anointed...
