The foodstuff of hogs was my fare
Very far from the banqueting table
Fed my soul at the troughs of despair.
I never ran short of companions
We thought that the swill was a feast,
Consumed by the lusts of the present
Never thought the carousing would cease.
My Father had other ideas,
I was spiralling out of control,
I began to despair of life’s purpose
Cried out from the depths of my soul.
He heard and He wondrously answered
He sent me the word of His grace
I gladly believed and repented
Left forever the crass and the base.
I feast now on Manna from Heaven
My soul is abundantly fed
I rejoice in the bountiful present
And I look to the glories ahead.
All His saints the Father has chosen
As Christ’s perfectly spotless Bride
Clothed in white garments of splendour
To reign evermore at His side.
The Bride will soon join with the Bridegroom—
Marriage feast in the Mansion above
Fulfilling the promise of Scripture—
Praise the Lord for His fathomless love!
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:5,6 NKJV.
Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His wife has made herself ready. Rev. 19:7 NKJV.
