Grafted In

a jewish reflection on Romans 11

Words and Music – S. Dauermann

God called a man named Abraham

And said, “Come follow me,

I’ll care for you, provide for you,

And meet your deepest need.

As countless as the stars of heav’n

Like sand upon the shore

Your seed shall be uncountable

And blessed forevermore.”

Through all the years of history

The Lord has kept his word

And Abra’m’s seed has multiplied

But oft forgot their Lord

And yet they are his Olive Tree

His treasure, his delight

Of all the nations in the world

Most precious in his sight

And you’ve been grafted in, grafted in

By grace to share in the blessings of God’s holy Olive Tree

Grafted in. grafted in

Now you’re rooted in the promises of God

Now rooted in the word of God

The gentiles grow as one

With others in the Olive Tree

Who glory in the Son

Yes Jewish roots were broken off

And you were grafted in

But if they turn back to the Lord

He’ll graft them in again

And they’ll be grafted in, grafted in

By grace to share in the blessings of God’s holy Olive Tree

Grafted in, grafted in,

They’ll be rooted in the promises of God
