Some have started and departed.
This caused our heart to pain.
We still believe God to give us
fruit that will remain.
Others partook and then forsook.
From truth they turned away.
But we’re trusting in the Lord
for souls to be planted and stay.
They will not cease, our prayers;
petitions, groanings and tears.
Lord, help us do what we can
to share your salvation plan.
To those that have not heard,
if they’ll listen, we’ll teach your Word.
Help us work while it is day.
The world is growing dark.
Give us the words to say
to ignite in hearts , a spark.
Let this be our decision;
to reach together for souls.
Help us to catch the vision.
Please use our church as a whole.
To help men turn from darkness
into Your marvelous light
and have their sin stained garments
by Your blood, washed white.
And that each new born Christian
whether old or just a youth,
would grow in grace and knowledge,
and continue to walk in truth.
Then when we reach that heavenly home
where Jesus will rule and reign,
we’ll stand together side by side
with the fruit that did remain.
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
