I am the vine, you are the branches


I am the river, you are the water,

I am the mountain, you are the soil,

I am the love, you are the touch,

I am the mother, you are the child,

I am the fragrance, you are the rose;

we belong with him, and in him.


There is no river without water,

no mountain without soil,

No love without touch,

no mother without child,

no fragrance without flower;


The risen Lord,

faithful promise of God to all of us

is the source of all life,

May we be grateful for the gift of life.


The risen Lord is the source of all love;

may we be grateful for the gift of love.


It is a continuous gift:

the vine gives life to the branches,

the river gives direction to the water,

the touch gives comfort of love,

the soil is enriched by the mountain,

the rose is made sweet by the fragrance.


I am the vine you are the branches.
