Lyrics

Strange Fruit

Written By: Marcia Brackett


You are the vine that supersedes me
You purify anything that ails me
And even though I often wonder why,
You give to me so freely these gifts that are a mystery at times
Hidden in these vines

I am revived when I abide in You
Your pour Your love, Your grace and abounding truth
But when I can’t feel Your presence near
It seems to be a tragedy for I can’t see the way You’ve paved for me
Estranged from Di-vine

Chorus
Strange Fruit, hidden in foreign vines
Strange Fruit, blooming where heaven lies
Strange Fruit, so often multiplied
Strange Fruit, given from the Most High

You strip away at things that aren’t pleasing
To make a way, for living free from enmities
These things You have spoken unto me
So that Your joy abounds in me abundantly Your Glory can be seen
Peering through these vines

Chorus
Strange Fruit, hidden in foreign vines
Strange Fruit, blooming where heaven lies
Strange Fruit, so often multiplied
Strange Fruit, given from the Most High

Bridge
And I know, The dresser of the vine is sent to cultivate me
Still It’s strange, That often I feel chilly when my branches lose their leaves
Bizarre, How you perceive me finished as I’m sprouting from a seed
Lord give me eyes to see that everything You take from me I truly didn’t need

Chorus
Strange Fruit, hidden in foreign vines
Strange Fruit, blooming where heaven lies
Strange Fruit, so often multiplied
Strange Fruit, given from the Most High

Vamp
Strange, Peculiar mysterious
Strange, So curious
Strange, Uncannily off tune to me, a wonderus anomaly
Strange, A spoken word of prophecy
Strange, Proclaimer's of the Kingdoms keys
Strange, To make lame walk and blind to see (Tongues)

Chorus
Strange Fruit, hidden in foreign vines
Strange Fruit, blooming where heaven lies
Strange Fruit, so often multiplied
Strange Fruit, given from the Most High
