The Vine

Here I am Lord once again, another restless night ahead

Careless words and bitter thoughts echo loudly in my head

Your peace is what I long for

as I reach into the darkness, I canít find it.

The storm it takes itís toll, and Iím so empty in my soul Ö In my soul.

But a new day dawns and I can see, the truth Your word reveals to me

And now the enemy, he cannot take my joy Ö take my joy!

Chorus

I claim my joy, I claim my peace

I claim all fruits of love and kindness Jesus Christ has promised me

Abundantly those fruits will grow to produce the sweetest wine

And this branch will not be severed from the one true,

The one true living vine, the One true living vine.

Bridge

Truth lies in your promise, when in me You abide

And Iíll abide within you Ö the one true living vine.

When attack comes from the enemy, ever seeking to destroy

I proclaim Your Spiritís power, and he cannot Ö he cannot steal my joy!

Repeat Chorus

I claim my joy, I claim my peace

I claim all fruits of love and kindness Jesus Christ has promised me

Abundantly those fruits will grow to produce the sweetest wine

And this branch will not be severed from the one true,

One true living vine, one true living vine.

Abide in me, Jesus Ö

For You are the vine.

The one true living vine

You are the vine Ö my Jesus

You are the vine.
