Taste and see, taste and see
the goodness of the Lord.
Oh, taste and see, taste and see
the goodness of the Lord, of the Lord.
I will bless the Lord at all times.
Praise shall always be on my lips;
my soul shall glory in the Lord;
for God has been so good to me. (Refrain)
Glorify the Lord with me.
Together let us all praise God’s name.
I called the Lord, who answered me;
from all my troubles I was set free. (Refrain)
Worship the Lord, all you people.
You’ll want for nothing if you ask.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
in God we need put all our trust. (Refrain)

Fanny Mendelssohn was four years older than her brother, Felix. A very talented musician, she could play Bach’s entire Well-tempered Clavier from memory by age thirteen. In 1829, Fanny married the painter Wilhelm Hensel. Felix was to have composed their wedding match. Legend has is that he procrastinated and procrastinated, until, finally, Fanny wrote it herself.
