Who is missing from the table? Part 2.

With all our hearts and all our songs join to admire the feast
Each of us cries with thankful tongue, "LORD, why was I a guest?
Why was I made to hear Your voice and enter while there's room,
When thousands make a wretched choice, and rather starve than come?"

'Twas the same love that spread the feast that sweetly drew us in
Else we would still refuse to taste and perish in our sin.

-- Isaac Watts, "How Sweet and Awesome Is the Place," 1707.
