Abide in Me, and I in you

  Abide in Me, and I in you,
As the branch cannot bear fruit
Of itself unless
It abides in the vine,
So neither can you
Unless you abide in Me.
I am the vine,
You are the branches,
He who abides in Me and I in him.
He bears much fruit
For apart from Me you can do nothing.
If you abide in Me and my words abide in you
Ask whatever you will and it will be done for you.
When we abide in the Lord and let His words abide in us,
We actually are one with Him as He works within us.
Then when we ask in prayer for whatever we will
It is not only we who are praying
He too is praying, in our praying.
This kind of prayer is related to fruit bearing
and will surely be answered.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and I set you.
That you should go forth and bear fruit,
And that your fruit should remain,
That whatever you ask the Father in my name,
He may give you.

Yes, please if anyone could direct us to somewhere on the internet where this song is being sung, I too would greatly appreciate it.


Coudersport, PA, United States

The words to this song drip the Lord's precious grace. If anyone has a webpage that I can go to to listen to someone sing this, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not musically inclined, so trying to listen to the music and place where the words go.... well, it's a challenge. Thank you, and may the love of Jesus richly abound in you!

Looking for a song that I would sing about "real growth" during a nation Pastors conference, I was so blessed when when I came across this song. This song is an answer to prayer. Praise God!

Amen, how we need to abide in the Lord continually and we should not be independent to Him. O Lord Jesus, I should take You as my Head. Apart from You Lord I can do nothing. Thank You that I'm part of this vine.

Right. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and I set you.

That you should go forth and bear fruit,

And that your fruit should remain,

Thank You Lord.

That was me. But God you saved me, this must be my new life. Otherwise I will continue to be lost.

Amen Lord without You I can do nothing! Regardless of capacity, capability everything in the Lord is vain. The only worth to God should come from Christ. Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, continue to make home in my hearts, occupy my whole being so that it is Christ and only Christ will operate through me.

We have a Glorious Father. Someone who cares, watches and loves us. I cannot say more than Thank Him, and Abide in HIM.

All I need to do is live in my Spirit.

Oh Lord Jesus!

I like this song because it makes me realize that apart from Christ I can do nothing. I'm so blessed that the Lord chose me, I just only need to abide in Him.
