Fruit of the Spirit Song

The “Fruit of the Spirit” song humorously explains that the fruits of the Holy Spirit, as described in Galatians 5:22-23, are not physical fruits like coconuts, bananas, watermelons, or grapes. Instead, it emphasizes that the true fruits are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. This catchy tune makes it clear that embodying these virtues is preferable to being any type of fruit, using a playful approach to highlight the importance of spiritual growth. This song would complement the Holy Spirit worksheet offering a fun and memorable way to learn about the fruits of the Spirit.
