God and Man at Table Are Sat Down

O, welcome, all ye noble saints of old
As now before your very eyes unfold
The wonders all so long ago foretold.
God and man at table are sat down.

Worship in the presence of the Lord
With joyful songs and hearts in one accord.
And let our Host at table be adored.
God and man at table are sat down.

Elders, martyrs, all are falling down;
Prophets, patriarchs are gath’ring round.
What angels longed to see now man has found:
God and man at table are sat down.

Beggars, lame, and harlots also here;
Repentant publicans are drawing near.
Wayward sons come home without a fear.
God and man at table are sat down.

Who is this who spreads the vic’try feast?
Who is this who makes our warring cease?
Jesus, Risen Savior, Prince of Peace.
God and man at table are sat down.

When at last this earth shall pass away,
When Jesus and his Bride are one to stay,
The feast of love is just begun that day.
God and man at table are sat down.

  1. Here is the last verse (someone removed it probably because it is very sacramental). I never see it listed whenever someone talks about it, which is a shame:

    Here He gives Himself to us as bread.
    Here as wine we drink the blood He shed.
    Born to die, we eat and live instead.
    God and man at table are sat down.

  2. Thomas, I like it, very nice way to end a wonderful song.

  3. Thomas, a fitting end to an excellent hymn.
