Representative Text

1 "All things are ready," come!
Come to the supper spread;
Come, rich and poor, come, old and young;
Come, and be richly fed.

2 "All things are ready," come!
The invitation's given
Through Him who now in glory sits
At God's right hand in heaven.

3 "All things are ready," come!
The door is open wide;
O feast upon the love of God;
For Christ, his Son, has died.

4 "All things are ready," come!
To-morrow may not be;
O sinner, come! the Saviour waits
This hour to welcome thee.
