grafted in – v2

in the vineyard, the garden
in the hands of the gardener
we are grafted in,
pulled from the world
Like a living shoot,
a new branch,
in the vine of the vintner
grafted in, entering
into the body of Christ
A shoot added to the vine
that give us new life
grafted in, included
into the family of God
Our old roots replaced
with the love divine
grafted in, growing
into the body of Christ
Each one together
sharing our new life
