Lyrics

Come to the feast that the Lord hath spread,
Here every soul may be truly fed;
Come in the name of your Living Head,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

Washed in the blood of the Lamb,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb;
Come, and your souls shall be truly fed,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Come to the feast, leave your care and strife,
Come, for His word is with blessings rife;
Now unto you is eternal life,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Refrain

Come to the feast, hear the Gospel word,
Come while your heart by its power is stirred;
Fly to the ark like the weary bird,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
