HYMN Lyrics Text: I Can Not Come To The Banquet

HYMN Lyrics Text: Humbly We Adore Thee

I cannot come to the banquet

Don’t trouble me now

I have married a wife

I have bought a new cow

I have fields and commitments

That cost a pretty sum

Pray hold me excused,

I cannot come

1. A certain man held a feast

on his fine estate in town

He laid a festive table

He wore a wedding gown and

He sent out invitations

to his neighbours far and wide

But when the meal was ready,

Each of them replied:

I cannot come.

2. The Master rose up in anger,

called his servants by name

said go into the town,

fetch the blind and the lame;

fetch the peasant and the pauper

For that I have willed.

my banquet must be crowded

and my table must be filled

I cannot come

3. When all the poor had assembled

there was still room to spare

so the master demanded;

go search everywhere,

to the highways and the byways

and force them to come in.

My table must be filled

before the banquet can begin,

I cannot come
