The Invitation Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

In the palace in the land of mercy
The King looked down from His throne
He saw the sick and the homeless and hungry
He saw me lost and without hope

And moved with compassion
He sent out his only Son
With the invitation, to come

This is your invitation come just the way you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace, come join the feast
Come in this is your invitation

So I stood outside the gates and trembled
In my rags of unworthiness
Afraid to even stand at a distance
In the presence of holiness

And just as I turned to go
The gates swung open wide
And the King and His only Son
They invited me inside

This is your invitation come just the way you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace come join the feast
Come in this is your invitation

So now will you come with me
To where the gates swing open wide
The King and his only Son
Are inviting us inside

This is our invitation come sinner as you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace, come join the feast
Come in this is your invitation
This is our invitation, this is the invitation
