Jesus Christ the Apple Tree

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
