1. Come, my friends, and taste with me
Full salvation running free,
Jesus now invites us:
He presents his charming grace;
See his lovely smiling face!
Will you now your Lord embrace,
Heaven and all its happiness,
Which to him unites us?

 

2. Earthly comfort soon will fly,
And its joys will shortly die,
Fading fast, they leave us;
Beauteous grace your Lord will grant,
He'll supply your every want;
All that for his mercy pant.
He will give without restraint;
Jesus will receive us.

 

3. Heaven is a delightsome place,
There are streams of perfect peace,
Which my passions capture:
All the happy tenants there
His own glorious image bear,
All his love and bounty share;
And their Jesus ever near,
Heightens still their rapture!
