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 lifeâ€™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 Christâ€™s perfectly spotless Bride
Clothed in white garments of splendour
To reign evermore at His side.
The Bride will soon join with the Bridegroomâ€”
Marriage feast in the Mansion above
Fulfilling the promise of Scriptureâ€”
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.
