The fruit of the Spirit; Christian maturity
FRUITFUL TREES, the Spirit’s sowing, may we ripen and increase,
fruit to life eternal growing,
rich in love and joy and peace.
2 Laden branches freely bearing gifts the Giver loves to bless;
here is fruit that grows by sharing, patience, kindness, gentleness.
3 Rooted deep in Christ our Master, Christ our pattern and our goal,
teach us, as the years fly faster, goodness, faith and self-control.
4 Fruitful trees, the Spirit’s tending, may we grow till harvests cease;
till we taste, in life unending, heaven’s love and joy and peace.
