Inclusive-Last-Supper-300x292

I wrote this communion song in 2010.  It can be sung to the tune of “Earth and All Stars.”
The words “are shared abundant,” in verse 4, are at the suggestion of Pastor Wolfgang Stahlberg.

BANQUET OF GOD

  1. 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.

Refrain:  Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace; living each day in holy embrace.

  1. 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.

Refrain:  Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace; living each day in holy embrace.

  1. 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.

Refrain:  Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace; living each day in holy embrace.

  1. 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.

Refrain:  Banquet of God, kingdom feast full of grace; living each day in holy embrace.
