Abide in me the verdant living vine.
Live as a prayer; my heart and yours entwined.
Sap of my love
enlivening your days,
making distinct what hinders and what saves.

Abide in me as I abide in you;
life as a prayer sustaining what is true.
Clearing the brittle,
burning off the false,
growing desire for what is whole and lasts.

Abide in me as I abide in you.
As I love you so let your loving be.
Fruit of compassion
bear creatively.
Communion with the yearning earth set free.

Abide in me the verdant living vine.
Feel in your days the energy divine,
shaping the seasons
growing in shalom.
Abide in me your ever-living home
