Representative Text

1 There’s a feast of love in the courts above,
There is room for all in the wedding hall;
For the King’s Son weds, and a feast He spreads,
In the royal wedding hall.

Refrain:
When the King comes in,
When the King comes in
To the feast of love in the courts above,
Ev’ry wedding guest must be richly dress’d,
When the King, when the King comes in.

2 See! the robes they wear, who are gather’d there
See! the Bridegroom now, with the thorn-crown’d brow,
And the wedding dress is His righteousness,
In the royal wedding hall. [Refrain]

3 Woe to them that come on that wedding morn!
Woe to them that there others robes shall wear!
For none enters in with a robe of sin,
To the royal wedding hall. [Refrain]
