The tree of life, how sweet the fruit,
With God as life complete.
I once was dead, but now I live,
Was starved, but now I eat.
'Twas God that brought me to the tree,
With Christ Himself as meat;
How precious did that tree become
When I began to eat.
The Lord Himself is food to me,
He is my life supply;
He will my pure enjoyment be,
None else can satisfy.
I freely eat this living tree,
For eating is the way
To put God's life inside of me,
To live by Him today.
