My heart is regularly encouraged by meditating on the coming marriage feast of the lamb. Seeing this future event by faith – and the innumerable feasts that will follow it in eternity – has been a source of repeated help and hope for my family. The words of this song by Sandra McCracken have helped in this regard for a number of years now. The feel of McCracken’s original fits well with this age of suffering saints who await the feast.
Lo and behold, the song also now has a Christian Soul Cover – a style which, at least for me, feels like music that previews the joys of the feast arrived. I find I am helped by both styles, resonating as they do with the already/not yet nature of these promises. I’ve posted them both here for your consideration.
We will feast in the house of Zion We will sing with our hearts restored He has done great things we will say together We will feast and weep no more We will not be burned by the fire He is the Lord our God We are not consumed by the flood Upheld protected gathered up In the dark of night before the dawn My soul be not afraid For the promised morning oh how long Oh God of Jacob be my strength Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed You are the faithful one And from the garden to the grave Bind us together bring shalom
