'Tis heaven on earth, Christ's love to taste

'Tis heaven on earth, Christ's love to taste

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 'Tis Heav'n on Earth, Christ's Love to taste
And feed his powerful Grace:
'Tis Heav'n above, to dwell by Love,
And see his glorious Face.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

2 Lord, in my Breast the Fire doth burn,
Of Love which thou hast giv'n;
Nothing on Earth can quench this Flame,
Nothing but Christ in Heav'n.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

3 Men here would know, the things below;
But I determin'd am
Christ crucify'd alone to know,
My sacrificed Lamb.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

4 The sweetest Days I have on Earth,
Are in thy Service spent;
The Comforts I enjoy in these
Do yield me most content.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

5 Communion Sabbaths here are Sweet,
But them we soon do spend;
In Heav'n the Sabbath sweeter is,
Which never hath an end.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

6 There Hallelujahs to the Lamb
No period will know;
No Willows there to hand our Harps,
As oft we find below.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.

7 O happy these who shall ascend
Where they still Sabbath keep,
Where in the heav'nly Work of Praise
They slumber not, nor sleep.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen.
