Key signature: F major (1 flat)
1. Thou true Vine, that heals the nations, Tree of life, Thy branches we. They who leave Thee fade and wither, None bear fruit except in Thee. Cleanse us, make us sane and simple, Till we merge our lives in Thine, Gain ourselves in Thee, the Vintage, Give ourselves through Thee, the Vine.
2. Nothing can we do without Thee; On Thy life depends each one. If we keep Thy words and love Thee, All we ask for shall be done. May we, loving one another, Radiant in Thy light abide; So through us, made fruitful by Thee, Shall our God be glorified.Public Domain
