Increase of Grace

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.

~ Ps 92:12,14

Lord, one thing we want,  
More holiness grant;  
For more of thy mind and thy image we pant:  
While onward we move  
To Canaan above,  
Come, fill us with holiness, fill us with love.

God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

His boundless grace shall all my need supply,
When streams of creature-comfort cease to flow:
And should he some inferior good deny,
’Tis but a greater blessing to bestow.

United to Christ

I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, he same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

~ John 15:5

Lord of the vineyard, we adore

That power and grace divine,

Which plants our wild, our barren souls,

In Christ the living Vine.

For ever there may I abide,

And from that vital root,

Be influence spread through every branch,

To form and feed the fruit.
