The Great Banquet

/
lyrics & music: Nina Åström

They came and took my husband, no explanations given
Later I was told he is an enemy of the state
Would you tell me; how can love and compassion be hostile; It just doesn’t make any sense
It seems that they’re really afraid of love
Afraid of the freedom that Christ gives
you can imprison me; but I’ll always be free
What I have can never be taken from me

I think they’re already serving appetizers at the Great Banquet

She is fifteen and belongs to Christ in a country
Where freedom in Jesus is a threat; so they rape her and beat her up
They want to break her down, ‘cause they think they can own her
It seems that they’re really afraid of love
Afraid of the freedom that Christ gives
you can imprison me; but I’ll always be free
What I have can never be taken from me

I think they’re already serving appetizers at the Great Banquet

This tiny home is full of people, we’ve come to fellowship
Bread and wine are passed on, we leave our burdens at the Cross
Suddenly the door flies open, rifles are flashing and gleaming in candle light
There’re shouts, commotion and chaos
It seems that they’re really afraid of love
Afraid of the freedom that Christ gives
you can imprison me; but I’ll always be free
What I have can never be taken from me

I think they’re already serving appetizers at the Great Banquet
