277. C. M. Doddridge. All Things Ready.
1 The King of heaven his table spreads,
And dainties crown the board:
Not Paradise, with all its joys,
Could such delight afford.
2 Ye hungry poor, that long have strayed
In sin's dark mazes, come;
Come from your most obscure retreats
And grace shall find you room.
3 Millions of souls, in glory now,
Were fed and feasted here;
And millions more, still on the way,
Around the board appear.
4 Yet are his house and heart so large,
That millions more may come;
Nor could the whole assembled world
O'erfill the spacious room.
