Come and Join Me at My Table

Here is another of my attempts at hymnody - taking inspiration from this week's gospel reading from the lectionary (Luke 14: 7 -14) and combining it with Dmitri Bortniansky's Vesper Hymn.

Come and Join Me at My Table

Come and join me at my table;
come enjoy the food and rest.
Come and eat, all who are able,
all are welcomed, all are blessed.
You who were despised, rejected,
you who were most dejected,
come and join me at my table;
all are welcomed, all are blessed.

There’s a place of honor waiting
for the one in life oppressed.
There’s a love that’s reinstating
those who are by Christ confessed.
Join him at the heavenly banquet
leave outside all past regret.
Come and join me at my table;
all are welcomed, all are blessed.
