(Adapted from Psalm 34, Isaiah 55, and Bebo Norman’s “The Only Hope”)
taste and see!
come close and see!
that the Lord is GOOD
he is richer than the richest food
more beautiful than the finest silk
sweeter than the sweetest honey
more radiant than the golden sun
experience his goodness
drink in his grace
swim in his ocean of mercy
and inhale his awesome majesty
who can know the heart of God?
who could possibly understand?
his thoughts are much higher
and his ways are unfathomable
we reach for crumbs
but he gives a feast
we long for a note of beauty
while he writes a symphony
so let us tell of his goodness to all
let us worship his name together
until my last breath, let me continue to praise
i will never stop singing of his kindness
for i have tasted and seen
i have experienced his goodness
his goodness in the suffering and pain
his beauty in the ugly and dark
he is beauty.
he is love.
and he longs to give these things to us
