From Isaac Watts…

From Isaac Watts– “How Sweet and Awesome Is This Place”, written in 1707

While all our hearts and all our songs join to admire the feast,
Each of us cries with thankful tongue, “Lord, why was I a guest?

Why was I made to hear Thy voice, and enter while there’s room,
while thousands make a wretched choice, and rather starve than come?”

Twas the same love that spread the feast that sweetly drew us in.
Else we had still refused to taste and perished in our sin.
