Hungry Feast

From John 6:35:  “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

Gathering in community

Preparing for His Hungry Feast

Coming to Heavenly Father

Worshipping Christ, our Holy Priest


Traveling life’s difficult road

Hungering for peace in our hearts

Tasting fellowship with Jesus

Targeting us with grace-filled darts


Fulfilling hope from Father’s love

Joining at His holy table

Seeking lasting, peaceful comfort

Witnessing Bethlehem’s stable


Rejecting evil’s dark presence

Praising and worshipping our Lord

Filling our hunger from His feast

Riding Gospel’s train . . . all aboard!

From Matthew 5:6:  “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

The hymn “We Come to the Hungry Feast” inspired the writing of this poem.  Some churches also use this tune as a communion hymn.
