Hymn 7 - "Lord, in Thee we taste the sweetness"


LORD, in Thee we taste the sweetness

Of the Tree of Life above;

 Taste its own eternal meetness

 For the heav'nly land we love.


In eternal counsels purposed,

Food of heav'nly life to be;

Fresh and ever new are yielded

Fruits of life on that blest Tree.


Varied fruits of richest flavour

Offers still the Tree divine;

 One itself, the same for ever,

Every precious fruit is Thine.


Fruits that now our souls have tasted

By the Spirit from above,

 While through desert lands we've hasted;

Fruits of perfect, endless love.
