COME TO THE TABLE

Chorus :
COME TO THE TABLE
HE’S WAITING FOR YOU
THE BREAD IS PREPARED
AND THE WINE IS THERE TOO

COME TO THE TABLE

IT’S WAITING FOR YOU
LET YOUR SINS BE FORGIVEN,
YOUR LIFE BE RENEWED

Verse:
FOR THE SAVIOR SPREADS OUT HIS ARMS OPEN WIDE
AND IN LOVE HE BIDS YOU TO COME
TASTE OF FORGIVENESS,
HE’S POURED OUT HIS BLOOD:
HIS LIFE IN THE FRUIT OF THE VINE

Chorus

SEE HIS BODY: IT’S COVERED WITH SCARS
IT’S THE PRICE HE’S PAID FOR YOUR SINS!
TASTE OF HIS HEALING
HE’S GIVEN US BREAD:
HIS BODY IS WOUNDED FOR OURS

Chorus

SEE HIS BODY: IT’S BATTERED AND MARRED
IT’S THE PRICE HE WAS WILLING TO PAY
SEE HOW HE LOVES YOU –
HE STETCHED OUT HIS ARMS
SAYING “COME UNTO ME TODAY “

The story behind the song

Jesus' blood washes away sin (the wine).  His body (the bread) took the penalty for our transgressions so that we might be healed. (By His Stripes, You Were Healed.). Paul said many are sick because they do not discern the Body. It may be that that do not understand the full price that was paid by Jesus' sacrifice. Variation on a traditional folk song:  “Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms” Also played by Bugs Bunny who purposely missed the last note... Shows how music influences you at a very young age!
