Banquet of God

Written with David N. Johnson

Banquet of God, inclusive table,

All are invited to dine with the Lord.

All here are guests, honored and valued;

Come and break bread and drink wine: be restored.

Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace;

Living each day in holy embrace.

 

Banquet of God, upside down values,

Last in the world but first at God’s feast.

Jesus the host serves all who gather;

Empties Himself for the sake of the least.

Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace;

Living each day in holy embrace.

 

Banquet of God, assorted faces

Gathered from north and south, east and the west.

Diverse we are, ever divided;

Feast on the gift that puts all rifts to rest.

Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace;

Living each day in holy embrace.

 

Jesus, He came preaching the kingdom,

Like a great meal where lavish love flows.

Grace, peace and justice are shared, abundant:

Working together so God’s realm now grows.

Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace;

Living each day in holy embrace.
