With meter 8 9 9 9 and refrain, the tune it is set to is unknown.

Lyrics

Chorus:
Bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in your life,
Let the life of Christ be seen in you;
Bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in your life,
And let the Lord be glorified in you.

Seek His patience and His kindness,
Seek His gentleness and self-control,
Seek His goodness and His faithfulness
And seek most His peace, and joy and love.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in your life,
Let the life of Christ be seen in you;
Bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in your life,
And let the Lord be glorified in you.

Seek His patience and His kindness,
Seek His gentleness and self-control,
Seek His goodness and His faithfulness
And seek most His peace, and joy and love.
