Taste and See

From the Boundless Life collection

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Take the bread, the body of Jesus,
Break the bread, the flesh of the world;
Taste and see the wonder of life.

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Take the wine, the life-blood of Jesus,
Pour the wine, the pain of the world;
Taste and see the wonder of life.

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Walk the earth with bare-footed reverence,
Smell the soil, the rain and the sea;
Feed your heart with wonder-filled life.

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Hear the sound of children’s bright laughter,
Cries of pain and tears of the poor;
Then let silence nurture your heart.

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Through each form, each texture and colour,
Line and hue, the light and the shade;
Taste and see the wonder of life.

Taste and see how gracious the Christ is,
Taste and see the wonder of life;
Drink the wine of love’s costly service,
Celebrate Life’s Eucharist now;
Taste and share Christ’s Body and Blood.
