Description
Herman G. Stuempfle, Jr.'s text celebrates Christ's provision for all, taking the wedding at Cana as its starting point. David Ashley White's joyful setting features a snappy, dancing organ part, supporting the idiomatic choral textures.

Text
Come, join in the feast!

Come, join in Cana's feast
where Christ is honored guest.
He welcomes all who come to taste
the wine his hands have blessed.

The old wine now is gone
from jars that stand apart.
No longer can it satisfy
the yearning, thirsting heart.

But Christ, the Word made flesh,
bids water turn to wine.
He fills our empty cups again
with grace and truth divine.

Come, join in the feast!

Come, friends and share the feast;
here drink the wine supplied
by him who is both guest and host;
for us, the crucified.

For now he lives and reigns
through all eternity
with Father, Spirit, three in one,
the glorious Trinity. Amen.
