We Are Told Of The Feast And The Wedding

We are told of the feast and the wedding,
Which the King had prepared in his home,
When the few that were bidden had spurned it,
Many more were invited to come.

Out on the highways, into the byways,
Over the mountain, over the sea,
Carry the message, tell of salvation,
Ring out the tidings, “Mercy is free.”

Christ today spreads a banquet of mercy,
And his servants invite to his home;
Sinner, all now is ready and waiting,
On the highways of sin cease to roam. [Refrain]

Slight no longer the kind invitation,
And the message of mercy we bring;
O accept now the bounty of Jesus,
And sit down at the feet of thy King. [Refrain]

Still the Spirit so tenderly woos you,
And the Bride full of love, echoes, “Come;”
Him that heareth and will, whosoever,
Let him come to the heavenly home. [Refrain]
