Come and Dine

by John Janzen © 2017

“Come and dine”, the Master calleth, “come and dine”
Not your righteousness or worthiness, but Mine
Is it true you question how
You can dine with Christ just now
When in truth He is the One who cleanses you

To the table, He is able, come and dine
And remember now the Lord with bread and wine
Body broken now as bread
Wine to show the blood was shed
It’s the finished work He did, not what you do

Thus remember now your Savior, come and dine
Know for certain you’re in Christ and you are fine
Don’t be searching deep for sin
Rather let His peace come in
And rejoice that He has called you now His own

Deal indeed in righteous anger with your sin
Deal the moment that the sin has entered in
Don’t put off to put away
‘til you’re near communion day
To make right the wicked seed that you have sown

Come and dine, the Master calleth don’t delay,
Don’t judge worth by all those things you do and say
It’s in Christ you stand complete
Not upon your own two feet
Now be still and rest in what His worth ensures

Rest assured the Lord completes the work he starts
Showing patience as He heals our broken hearts
As He works with what remains
Let us lift our glad refrains
And partake of what His finished work secures

Blessed hope you have in Jesus Christ the Lord
Trade for sin His righteousness as your reward
He alone has paid the cost
For salvation on the cross
King of kings and Lord of lords in Heav’n adored

Come and dine, the Master calleth, come and dine
And rejoice that you are His and He is thine
You no greater joy have known
Than the love that Christ has shown
To the table, He is able, praise the Lord!
