The. Banquet

The Banquet

You who eat to gladden your gut, 
You who indulge to comfort the flesh, 
Come to a true banquet!

Rejoice your spirit, 
Give joy to your soul. 
Fatten your prayer on faith.

Let words ravish the Heart of God. 
Even words unspoken, but burning in your heart, 
Call angels to your side.

Quiet the world, by stepping apart, 
Still your flesh in earnest fast, 
Widen the breath of your praise.

The majesty of God inclines to your lips. 
For it is He, Who has promised. 
Whisper and He smiles.
