The Banquet Table Lyrics
Welcome my friends to the banquet table All of my friends please gather round
So I took a look around to see who he invited here tonight And I noticed she was one of those who sold her body to the night And I saw the banquet host rise and hold this woman close And I felt my anger burn how was she invited here tonight?
Notice me here (notice me here) at the banquet table In my rightful place (in my rightful place) This is my time (here I am)
And I saw a little man climbing on his chair so he was heard And I noticed he was one who'd rob you blind for all that you were worth And I saw the banquet host rise and fill his empty glass Is there a single shred of justice at this table here tonight?
Welcome to the banquet table All my friends, won't you please gather 'round You've been invited to the banqueting table So look around (repeat)
Welcome to the banquet table All my friends, won't you please gather 'round He said you're welcome at my banquet table You're my friends if you've got love inside you're heart
No one's righteous no one's better So take a look inside Take a look inside I took a look inside
And suddenly I felt my eyes pouring tears on me of liberty And I realized I was one who needed love and setting free My brother here my sister there And the banquet host his empty chair Forgiveness came and sweet relief And then I saw why he invited me tonight
