Lyrics

Christ is the vine, and we the branches are.
Without him, we no fruit can bare.
For of ourselves, we cannot grow,
He must both power, and life bestow.

Lord, thou has chosen us that we
Should bear well-pleasing fruit to thee:
O make us fruitful to thy praise.
Preserve us from all barrenness.
