THE King of heaven his table spreads

And blessings crown the board;

Not paradise with all its joys,

Could such delight afford.

Pardon and peace to dying men,

And endless life are given:

Through the rich blood that Jesus shed

To raise our souls to heaven.

Millions of souls, in glory now,

Were fed and feasted here;

And millions more, still on the way,

Around the board appear.

All things are ready, come away.

Nor weak excuses frame;

Crowd to your places at the feast,

And bless the Founder's name
