Writings of John Leland, 1845


     The Christian's Consolation
1. Come and taste, along with me,
Consolation running free,
From my Father's glorious throne,
Sweeter than the honey comb.

2. Wherefore should I seek alone?
Two are better still than one;
More that come, of free good will,
Make the banquet sweeter still.

3. Saints in glory sing aloud,
To behold an heir of God,
Coming in at grace's door,
Making up the number more.

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

5. Sinful nature, vile and base,
Cannot stop the run of grace,
While there is a God to give,
Or a sinner to receive.

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

7. Then, rejoicing, home I go,
From this feast of heaven below,
Gleaning manna on the road
Dropping from the mouth of God.

8. Heaven there, and heaven here,
Comforts every where appear,
This I boldly can declare,
Since my soul receives a share.

 

Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Use
of Christians, 1803

     The Means of Grace
1. Come and taste along with me,
Consolation running free,
From our Father's wealthy throne,
Sweeter than the honey comb.

2. Why should Christians feast alone,
Two are better far than one;
The more that come with free good will,
Make the banquet sweeter still.

3. Now I go to heaven's door,
Asking for a little more;
Jesus gives a double share,
Calling me his chosen heir.

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

5. Now my body doth its best
For to keep me back from Christ?
I've a treasure coming in,
Which is opposite to sin.

6. Sinful nature, prone to vice.
Cannot stop the force of grace,
While there is a God to give,
And a sinner to receive.

7. Saints in glory singing loud
In the praises of their God,
Now come in at heaven's door.
Making still the number more.

8. Heaven's here and heaven's there.
Comfort flowing every where,
This I boldly do confess,
That my soul has got a taste.

9. Now I go rejoicing home,
From the banquet of perfume,
Finding manna on the road,
Dropping from the seat of God.

10. O return ye sons of grace.
Turn and see God's smiling face;
Hark! he calls backsliders home,
Then from no longer roam.

 

Ingalls' Christian Harmony, 1805


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

2. Goodness here, and goodness there,
Comforts flowing every where;
By his constant breaking forth,
Gladdens earth and heaven both.

3. Though my body doth its best.
For to keep me off from Christ,
Drawn by grace I’ll run to him,
Who alone can pardon sin.

4. Now I’ll go to heaven’s door,
Asking for a little more;
Jesus gives a double share,
Calling me a gleaner there.

5. Sinful nature lurks in vice.
Cannot stop the works of grace;
While there is a God to give,
And a sinner to receive.

6. Now I'll go rejoicing home.
From the banquet of perfume;
Gleaning many on the road,
Dropping from the mouth of God.

7. Goodness running like a stream.
Through the new Jerusalem;
By his constant breaking forth,
Gladdens earth and heaven both..

8. Heaven's here and heaven’s there,
Comforts flowing every where;
This I boldly can protest,
For my soul has got a taste.
