Oh God, correct us when we are dull
in perceiving your goodness.
Your goodness should be more
than a matter of simple knowledge.
Often we do not taste your many blessings
but devour your gifts without relishing them
or conceal them with ungrateful loathing.
You call us to stir up our senses
bringing full palates endued with tasting
that your goodness might be fully known
or rather, to be completely revealed to us.
after John Calvin, 1509 – 1564, Swiss Reformer
adapted from the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, Psalm 34
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
