Taste and See



It’s not just a taste
That I’m after
Some look-see Evangel to try.
For that will not hold
Me to Holy,
Or shield me when
Harm passes by.

Consider the Friend
Of all sinners,
And imitate Him if I can?
For none ever spake
Life the wiser,
Or comforted more
Than this Man.

But knowing myself,
That I waiver
And daily lose sight of the goal.
I wonder could God
Ever love me?
Unfailingly
Harbour my soul?

And then comes the truth
Like the sun-rise.
The Father has drawn me to come.
Has seen me full into
The sheepfold.
Has made me a gift
To His Son.

And with these new
Eyes of the Spirit
This chosen child finally finds rest.
And daily delivers
The service
A thankful heart
Renders the best.

Psalm 34
8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to him.

9 Worship God if you want the best;
worship opens doors to all his goodness.

10 Young lions on the prowl get hungry,
but God-seekers are full of God.
(The Message)
