Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

'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.
