Pause for Prayer: THURSDAY 5/9

Jesus Christ the Apple Tree (Elizabeth Poston) by Schola Cantorum San Francisco on Grooveshark  

This beautiful hymn is one of my favorites.  I just happened upon it again after a long time and wanted to share it with you as today's Pause for Prayer...  

Jesus Christ the Apple Tree      

The tree of life my soul hath seen    
Laden with fruit and always green     
The tree of life my soul hath seen    
Laden with fruit and always green   
The trees of nature fruitless be     
Compared with Christ the apple tree. 

His beauty doth all things excel     
By faith I know but ne'er can tell     
His beauty doth all things excel     
By faith I know but ne'er can tell     
The glory which I now can see   
In Jesus Christ the apple tree.    

For happiness I long have sought    
And pleasure dearly I have bought    
For happiness I long have sought     
And pleasure dearly I have bought    
I missed of all but now I see     
'Tis found in Christ the apple tree.   

 I'm weary with my former toil   
Here I will sit and rest a while     
I'm weary with my former toil     
Here I will sit and rest a while    
Under the shadow I will be     
Of Jesus Christ the apple tree.     

This fruit does make my soul to thrive    
It keeps my dying faith alive     
This fruit does make my soul to thrive     
It keeps my dying faith alive     
Which makes my soul in haste to be     
With Jesus Christ the apple tree.
