Come to the table, sinner and saint,
strong-hearted, mighty, weary and faint,
empty, repentant, seeking a place.
Christ welcomes you with joy and with grace.
Come, unfraid, for here you will find
Love does not judge, nor fail to be kind.
Love treats as one all those who believe.
Come to Loveâ€™s table, Christ now receive.
All things are ready, come and draw near.
Share in the supper laid for us here:
bread that is broken, cup of red wine,
Love's holy token--human, divine.
Eat, and remember, as we partake,
Jesus the Christ who died for our sake,
sharing our lot and showing Loveâ€™s way,
rising to lead us to a new day.
Go from the table joyful in heart,
filled with thanksgiving as you depart,
graced by the Spirit, blessed by our Friend,
strengthened by God to serve to lifeâ€™s end.
