1 Amid the world's bleak wilderness
A vineyard grows with promise green,
The planting of the Lord himself.

2 His love selected this terrain;
His vine with love he planted here
To bear the choicest fruit for him.

3 We are his branches, chosen, dear,
And though we feel the dresser's knife,
We are the objects of his care.

4 From him we draw the juice of life,
For him supply his winery
With fruit from which true joys derive.

5 Vine, keep what I was meant to be:
Your branch, with your rich life in me.
