All things are ready, come to the feast

1
“All things are ready,” come to the feast!
Come for the table now is spread;
Ye famishing, ye weary, come,
And thou shalt be richly fed.
  Hear the invitation,
Come, whosoever will;
Praise God for full salvation
  For whosoever will.
2
“All things are ready,” come to the feast!
Come, for the door is open wide;
A place of honor is reserved
For you at the Master’s side.
3
“All things are ready,” come to the feast!
Come, while He waits to welcome thee;
Delay not while this day is thine,
Tomorrow may never be.
4
“All things are ready,” come to the feast!
Leave every care and worldly strife;
Come, feast upon the Christ of God
And drink everlasting life.

All our character defects, mistakes and sins are due to malnutrition! We're famished, starving even! Christ, as our Passover Feast of unleavened bread is what we all need. We need to feed even feast on Christ. Let's come even now. "The door is opened wide. "Today may be ours tomorrow may not be ..."

A blast from my childhood. The alto part with all the intricacies leading the chorus are fondly embedded in my mind. Praise God for the beauty of this hymn!

A brother shared with me that his daily morning prayer is that the Lord would give him two people each day to whom he could speak the gospel. May I also be one that gives out the invitation "Come, whosoever will!"

Singing this at the Lord's Table is sweet indeed. "All things are ready": everything has been accomplished by the Lord, and what we need to do is simply come and eat! Actually, our feast is nothing else but Christ Himself becoming our satisfaction and enjoyment. We turn away from everything else unto the Lord and eat Him. Praise the Lord!
