A Song on the Coming Feast

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

“We Will Feast in the House of Zion” by Sandra McCracken
