Taste and See

In Morning Prayer today we have Psalm 34, the 8th verse of which tells us to taste and see that the Lord is good. Usually we think that we can look and see, but in Holy Communion we can taste and see that the Lord is good. So I offer this part of Psalm 34 for your consideration:

I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

I will glory in the Lord;
let the humble hear and rejoice.

Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord
let us exalt his Name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me
and delivered me out of all my terror

Look upon him and be radiant,
and let not your faces be ashamed.

I called in my affliction and the Lord heard me
and saved me from all my troubles.

The angel of the Lord encompasses those who fear him,
and he will deliver them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
happy are they who trust in him!

In peace,
