Plant your roots in the Bible,
water them every single day
feed upon the Word of God
grow in the righteous way.
Nurture yourself in the Bible,
let Jesus’ grace take a firm hold
then you’ll produce fruits of love
beautifully, bountifully bold.
Establish yourself in the Bible,
firmly set down your foundation
let the roots of your faith
be grounded in your salvation.
Plant your treasures in heaven,
be rooted in the Kingdom to come
pray for the Holy Spirit’s indwelling
so to root-rot you won’t succumb!
King James Version
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,”
Deborah Ann Belka
