Written in 1981, "Taste and See" was one of the first songs written by Carol Vriend Petter (b. Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 1954) for worship at Church of the Servant, a Christian Reformed church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that celebrates the Lord's Supper weekly. The text makes good use of both Old Testament and New Testament images. In covenant with God, we taste and see his love as we share the Lord's Supper (st. 1; ref.), experiencing the blessings of pardon, grace, and kingdom inheritance (st. 2), at the same time reminding ourselves of our mission to share God's love with the spiritually and physically needy (st. 3).
A graduate of Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Petter is currently a retirement plan administrator for First Michigan Bank in Grand Rapids. She is a member of Church of the Servant, and some of her hymns are published in that congregation's hymnal supplement, Joyful Noises.
