1 Will you come to the feast that is spread for you?
Will you come? will you come?
Long ago would the Saviour have fed you!
Will you come? will you come?

Refrain:
Will you come to the feast, needy sinner?
He’ll the needs of your soul supply,
Will you come to the feast, dying sinner?
Will you come to the feast, or die?

2 Will you come to the feast you have slighted?
Will you come? will you come?
By the patient Redeemer invited,
Will you come? will you come? [Refrain]

3 Will you come to the feast of salvation?
Will you come? will you come?
Will you come and be done with privation,
Will you come? will you come? [Refrain]

4 Will you come to the feast while ‘tis offered?
Will you come? will you come?
To provide it, how Jesus once suffered!
Will you come? will you come? [Refrain]
