Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Will you come to the feast?
Will you sup with the Lord?
He will welcome the least
To his bountiful board;
There’s enough and to spare, and right royal the fare,
Will you come, one and all, to the feast?

Refrain:
Will you come, will you come,
Will you come to the feast?
For the world there is room,
Lo! the King will preside, for each guest will provide,
Will you come, will you come to the feast?

2 Will you come and be fed
By your Saviour and Lord?
With our great King and head
Will you sit at the board?
He invites you today, dare you longer delay?
Is there one who will dare to say nay? [Refrain]

3 Open wide is the door
To the banqueting hall–
Are you hungry and poor?
There is food for you all;
Come and sup with the King, with our Prophet and Priest,
Come, oh, come, one and all, to the feast. [Refrain]
