I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.@John 15:5

Kate G. Perkins, in The Master’s Call (Dayton, Ohio: Lorenz & Company, 1901).

S. M. Chase (🔊 pdf nwc).

I am the vine, ye are the branches,
The Master’s voice fell low
Upon the ears of His disciples,
That night so long ago.

Refrain

Forever, forever…
My Savior, abide with me!
Forever, forever…
My Savior, abide with me!

He that in Me abideth ever,
So ran the Master’s word;
Shall bring forth fruit unto the harvest,
And great is his reward.

Refrain

He that abideth not is withered,
Cast out that branch shall be;
For without Me ye can do nothing,
O soul, abide in Me.

Refrain

So shall ye be My own disciples,
My life shall dwell in you;
And whatsoever ye shall ask Me
That will I surely do.

Refrain
