Like the marriage of a bridegroom

Like the marriage of a bridegroom
when the banquet is prepared,
soon the bride will be arriving,
all is waiting to be shared.
All may come by invitation,
all may share at God’s great feast,
all are welcome, none excluded,
come, the greatest and the least.

Guests were called, some were indifferent,
others gave a lame excuse;
can we comprehend this action?
Grace was greeted with abuse.
What profound exasperation
when the greatest gift of all
met with human inattention,
many folk ignored God’s call.

Verse 3 follows



Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
