Planted in the love of the Father

You can grow, dear one,

You can grow.

Watered by the spring of the Spirit

His fruit you’ll show,

His fruit you’ll show.

And when the sun scorches,

And the thorns threaten,

And the storms around life’s garden blow –

Your roots will hold,

And hold secure, 

Because you’re planted in the love of the Father.
