The wine of life is running low,
the celebration stales;
The guests are growing restless,
their joy and laughter pales.
Your hour, Lord, has surely come
to liven up this space,
Our world has lost its purpose,
Disaster claims the race.
For bombs and missiles threaten
and hope is laid to rest;
The rich oppress the needy,
the selfish claim the best.
When scheming’s been exhausted
and armored strength’s no cure,
Will you provide a better wine
that sparkles clear and pure?
The best for last is treasured”,
Earth’s guests and stewards cry;
Come, Jesus, grace our feasting
and do not pass us by.
For at this global wedding
where all of us have place,
We’d celebrate your presence
‘til earth has owned your grace.
