The Fruit Of The Spirit

Your bananas might be 50p a pound
And your oranges all juicy and round
But the fruit that you be sellin’
You proclaim with all your yellin’
Is nought compared to the fruit that I have found

‘Cos the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace
Patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
Gentleness, self control

The fruit you have will last you but a week
So listen to these lasting words I speak
Oh I’ve got fruit you can’t see
That’s grown there inside me
It makes me like the Saviour that I seek

God’s put it in Galatians 5, 22
(Trust Him, ‘cos what He says is true)
So ask the Holy Spirit, to fill you without limit
And let Him grow His special fruit in you (too)
