ABIDING IN ME
An amazing event happened on the cross
It is the reason Christ abides in me.
A gift so great it makes me pause
To think what happened on that tree.
The life I now live is Christ in me
A marvel hard to understand
God knew what He had to achieve
His love for us, He had it planned.
I am the branch, He is the vine
Apart from the vine I cannot be.
Bearing much fruit is to obey
Lord, please guide me along the way.
The way to glorify God is to bear fruit
Showing my love in gratitude
Abiding in me
Glorifying you Lord.

you have believed; blessed are those who have
not seen and yet have believed
