1 Come and taste along with me,
Consolations running free,
From my Father's worthy home,
Sweeter than the honey comb.

2 Wherefore should I feast alone,
Two are better far than one,
More that come with free good will.
Makes the banquet sweeter still,

3 Saints in glory sing aloud,
For to see an heir of God;
Coming in at heaven's door,
Making up the number more.

4 Goodness running like a stream,
Through the new Jerusalem;
By its constant breaking forth,
Sweetens earth and heaven both.

5 Though my body do its best,
For to keep me off from Christ;
See the treasure coming in,
Destin'd to the port of sin.

6 Sinful nature, lurking vice,
Cannot stop the run of grace;
Whilst there is a God to give,
And a sinner to receive.

7 When I go to heaven's store,
Asking for a little more;
Joseph gives a double share,
Calling me a gleaner there.

8 Then I go rejoicing home,
From the banquet of perfume;
Gleaning manna on the road,
Dropping from the mouth of God.

9 Heaven's here, and heaven's there,
Comfort flowing every where,
This I boldly can attest,
That my soul hath got a taste,

Leland, John, an American Baptist minister, was born at Grafton, Massachusetts, on May 15th, 1754, and began to preach at the age of 20. From 1776 to 1790 he was in Virginia, and thereafter in Massachusetts, mostly at Cheshire. He died Jan. 14, 1841. His Sermons, Addresses, Essays and Autobiography were published by his niece, Miss L. F. Greene, at Lanesboro, Massachusetts, in 1845. His influence seems to have been equalled by his peculiarities. We hear of his "restless activity and roving disposition"; his "mad devotion to politics," wherein he had much local and temporary weight; his "ready wit and endless eccentricities;" as also of his high character. Of the hymns which have been ascribed to him, some on doubtful authority, the followin… Go to person page >
