Come now and join the feast
From the greatest to the very least
Come now and join the feast
Right here in the belly of the beast

Cops and soldiers you can come too –
Lay down your guns and c’mon thru
Rich people get rid of your stuff
Poor people there will be enough

Mighty ones come down from your thrones
Little ones you will not be alone

Lazy man come to the table
Make some food for those who ain’t able
Pretty winner swallow your pride

Drink the ugly loser who for all died
Make sure everyone gets some
Then we’ll see the kingdom…

Matthew 6: 25-34

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
