A SMALL TASTE OF NEW EDEN
The Lord passes His cup around
Death to self, life only in Him,
And who is worthy?
Communion with the greatest
Fellowship with the One above all
Friendship with the One who watched our very conception,
Who formed in the womb
And birthed each person into the ripe fields of destiny,
Highest knowledge, richest foreknowledge
Spirit of love who joins,
Peaceful flow that binds His flock together
Flock born to be one in Him
Born to be joined as a single body
Eternal Body of Messiah in celebration,
Each belongs to the other
Common divine grace that marries
Common healthy love that compels.
One holy vision burns purely in every new heart
Zealous hope where death is destroyed,
Conquering joy where eternal life is exulted.
