Listen to “Come to the Banquet”


Come to the banquet, come sit by his side,

His table is waiting, and friends have arrived.

You have been chosen the most honored guest

Of our Master and Savior Lord Jesus.

(A)

He’s calling to you, yes, you at the door,

Come in from the cold, come make yourself warm;

The food is abundant, and all has been blessed

By our Master and Savior Lord Jesus.


Verse 1Group Response
Look all around you,So many strangers here,
What do you see?Who could they be?
Why, beggars and blind men,Rascals and scoundrels,
Cripples and thieves,Perhaps we should leave!
Where are your neighbors,All having coffee,
Your affluent friends?Flaunting and counting,
Had other commitments,Just couldn’t be here,
They send their regrets.We’ll ask ‘um again!


They shall go hungry and long to be fed
By our Master and Savior Lord Jesus.

Come to the banquet, come sit by his side,
His table is waiting and friends have arrived.
You have been chosen the most honored guest
Of our Master and Savior, Lord Jesus.

(B)

Those who are first shall make way for the least,

The mighty shall hunger, the hungry shall eat;

All who are humble shall share in the feast

With our Master and Savior Lord Jesus.

Verse 2Group Response
Who wears the apron?Rubbing and scrubbing
Who opens the door?Who sweeps the floor?
Who sets a table?Crystal and sparkle
Then welcomes the poor?So, that’s whom it’s for!
No earthly treasureNo ‘mount of money,
Could pay back in kind.Accounts have been settled;
Promise of Heaven,Nothing so precious as
Life for all time;Praise him forever!

Sets the example that we do the same,
Our Master and Savior, Lord Jesus.

Come to the banquet, come sit by his side,
His table is waiting, and friends have arrived.
His table is waiting, and friends have arrived.
His table is waiting, and friends have arrived.
