Jesus: My Tree of Life

Make my life a sacrifice
Planted in your tree of love
Prune the sin from within
And let your first fruits flow

For what is a branch in me
Without the root in You?
It can't have eternal life,
But only comes and goes.

Help me burn my spoiled fruit,
A cheap output of mine.
As I decrease, may you increase
A harvest to be sewed.

Lord, receive my ripe offspring
And feed it to the soil
Such grace I have in You
To help another seed grow.

(Inspired by John Chapter 15)
