Abiding Love

If we remain in God's love
And keep His commands,
The joy of Jesus
We may understand 

He, for the joy,
Laid His life down
For us, His friends to whom
God's will He's made known

Christ chose us and called us
To bear fruit that remains 
So that the Father will give
What we ask in His name

To Him be the glory
As we follow the Lord
His love flowing through us
To each other outpoured
