     1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 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. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.(KJV)

In the Hour of Trial

1. In the hour of trial, 
Jesus, plead for me 
Lest by base denial 
I depart from Thee. 
When Thou see’st me waver, 
With a look recall 
Nor for fear or favor 
Suffer me to fall. 

2. With forbidden pleasures 
Should this vain world charm 
Or its tempting treasures 
Spread to work me harm, 
Bring to my remembrance 
Sad Gethsemane 
Or, in darker semblance, 
Cross-crowned Calvary. 

3. Should Thy mercy send me 
Sorrow, toil, and woe, 
Or should pain attend me 
On my path below, 
Grant that I may ever 
Cast my care on Thee. 

4. When my last hour cometh. 
Fraught with strife and pain, 
When my dust returneth 
To the dust again, 
On Thy truth relying, 
Through that mortal strife, 
Jesus, take me, dying, 
To eternal life.
