Taste God's Love Again

Taste God's Love Again

Tall trees are swaying to and fro.
The stiffness of the breeze, so much -
that I can feel the frigid wind.
I try, but cannot see its touch.
 
My nose is nudged by autumn's breeze,
but what is really meant -
by fragrances that breezes send?
I try, but cannot see its scent.
 
There's rustling from some fallen leaves
that swirl on the ground.
They seem to try to speak to me.
I try, but cannot see their sound.
 
I savor flavor on my tongue,
that it not go to waste -
yet stomach yearns for sustenance.
I try, but cannot see its taste.
 
The feel or scent or sound or taste -
our eyes won't comprehend -
but only by our eyes, believe.
On senses, we depend.
 
Accumulate, we do, so much.
We see the things we've stored.
We search all our possessions through.
We try, but cannot find the Lord.
 
If hands can't hold the truth of life,
if lungs can't breathe the thrill,
if ears can't hear His still small voice -
then taste our death, we will.
 
The purest blood may fill the vein
and freshest air, the lung -
but blind and dead we'll ever be -
if we but taste with tongue!
 
IF touch we, only physical.
IF follow we, our nose.
IF hear we, only mortal words
we'll taste but earthly woes.
 
But feel, if we, the spiritual,
and peace can fill our lungs,
and truth can teach our selfish ears,
great joy can voice our tongues!
 
So feel it now - the Master's touch -
and breathe His blessings in -
and hear the music of God's grace -
and taste God's love again!

Who have eyes but do not see;
Who have ears but do not hear.
