8.7.8.7.


1
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.
2
In eternal counsels purposed,
Food of heavn'ly life to be;
Fresh and ever new are yielded
Fruits of life on that blest Tree.
3
Varied fruits of richest flavour
Offers still the Tree divine;
One itself, the same for ever,
Every precious fruit is Thine;
4
Fruits that now our souls have tasted
By the Spirit from above,
While through desert lands we've hasted;
Fruits of perfect, endless love.

J.N. Darby
