Lyrics

Chorus:
Come to me Lord, and live within me
Fill my soul with your life and love.

Free from sin this day Lord, preserve me,
True to your word give me your peace.

Bring quick relief to all who suffer,
Comfort and strength to all who mourn.

You are the vine,and we are the branches,
Though you are many, in You we are one.
