The Invitation

I bow before the throne of grace
I don’t deserve to see His face
He wraps me in His kingly robes
He puts His crown upon my head
“My child,” He said, “I took your place!
Your debt is gone, your sin erased
I paid your price, My blood was shed
Now sit and eat my bread, and drink my wine!”
I glanced into a face like mine
His presence sparkled royal, sublime;
The voice of God broke forth divine–
“Welcome to eternity with me!”
