But man rebels, and for one tast doth chooseAuthor: Matthew Hale; Author: Stephen P. Starke
Tune: WELCOME (Blersch)
Published in 2 hymnals
1 As rebels, Lord, who foolishly have wandered
Far from Your love--unfed, unclean, unclothed--
Dare we recall Your wealth so rashly squandered,
Dare hope to glean that bounty which we loathed?
2 Still we return, our contrite words rehearsing,
Speech, that within Your warm embrace soon dies;
All of our guilt, our shame, our pain reversing
As tears of joy and welcome fill Your eyes.
3 A feast of love for us You are preparing;
We who were lost, You give an honored place!
"Come, eat; come, drink, and be no more despairing--
Here taste again the treasures of My grace."
