As He Gathered At His Table [#AsHeGathered #AtHisTable #HisTable #AsHeGatheredAtHisTable]

Song written by:
Original in English: Paul A. Richardson

1
As He gathered at His table
Those who longed to know the way
Christ proclaimed a holy mystery
Still His words call us today

2
As He blessed the bread and broke it
human need to satisfy
Christ made even traitors welcome
still we question Is it I

3
As they sang a hymn together
praising Israel’s saving King
Hearts and voices made one music
Still delivering love we sing

1
As He gathered at His table
Those who longed to know the way
Christ proclaimed a holy mystery
Still His words call us today

2
As He took the towel and basin
Not as master but as friend
Christ portrayed the way of service
still in serving we must bend

3
As He blessed the bread and broke it
human need to satisfy
Christ made even traitors welcome
still we question Is it I

4
As He took the cup and shared it
telling of the Father’s care
Christ poured out Himself in promise
still that covenant we must share

5
As they sang a hymn together
praising Israel’s saving King
Hearts and voices made one music
Still delivering love we sing

6
As He went into the garden
Praying Father use your Son
Christ alone could know its meaning
Still we pray God’s will be done

7
Though this feast be one of symbols
What we celebrate is real
Still Christ welcomes to His table
Still Christ serves us at His meal
