Carried to the Table



Lyrics Artist (Band): Leeland
(I recommend you listen to this song on youtube by clicking on the title)


Wounded and forsaken

I was shattered by the fall

Broken and forgotten

Feeling lost and all alone



Summoned by the King

Into the Master’s courts

Lifted by the Savior

And cradled in His arms



I was carried to the table

Seated where I don’t belong

Carried to the table

Swept away by His love



And I don’t see my brokenness anymore

When I’m seated at the table of the Lord

I’m carried to the table

The table of the Lord



Fighting thoughts of fear

And wondering why He called my name

Am I good enough to share this cup

This world has left me lame



Even in my weakness

The Savior called my name

In His Holy presence

I’m healed and unashamed



You carried me, my God

You carried me


So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem:
for he did eat continually at the king's table;
and was lame on both his feet.
2 Samuel 9:13

I think when our Spirit bears witness with His spirit, we're carried to the table even when we don't know we need it. How many times we are rescued unaware? I'm grateful for the times I ask, the times I don't, and the times I can't. Awesome post Karen--just awesome.
