At The Table

Written 1998

Tab G, open

there’s enough for everyone,
for the old and for the young
at the table, at the table
though you’re poor and cannot pay
you will not be turned away
from the table, from the table
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long,
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long…

are you lost in your despair?
you will find no judgment there
at the table, at the table
cry out on a city street
call the people that you see
to the table, to the table
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long,
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long…

we long for justice in this world,
for a place where all are heard
like a table, like a table
for your daughters and your sons
there’s enough for everyone,
at the table, at the table
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long,
+++ fill me, I’ve been empty for so long…
