Representative Text

1 Come, for the banquet is waiting,
The Master invites you today,
The Saviour is calling my brother,
And can you make longer delay?

Chorus:
Jesus is lovingly calling,
All things are ready, oh come,
Come hungry souls you are welcome,
Oh come, ye starving ones, come.

2 Come, oh ye hungry and starving,
The beggar shall eat with the king,
The poorest shall sit at the table,
No money nor gift need you bring. [Chorus]

3 Come, though your garments are ragged,
The Master a robe will provide,
‘Tis whiter than snow and ‘tis spotless,
‘Twas washed in His blood when He died. [Chorus]

4 Come though your sins are as scarlet,
The Saviour will freely forgive,
You may not be living tomorrow,
Oh heed you the summons and live. [Chorus]
