Abiding in Jesus,
  our Root and
  our Vine,
brings forth 
sweet and lush  
  supernatural fruit
by the Spirit's design.

Such divine bearing
  abundantly yields
  honor and glory
to the One Who is Worthy,
Our Father in heaven.
-Nancy Spiegelberg

But when the Holy Spirit 
controls our lives, 
he will produce this 
kind of fruit in us: 
love, joy, peace, patience, 
kindness, goodness, 
faithfulness, gentleness, 
and self-control.
Galatians 5:22, 23a
