1 Come, join in Cana's feast
Where Christ is honored guest.
He welcomes all who come to taste
The wine His hands have blessed.
2 The old wine now is gone
From jars that stand apart.
No longer can it satisfy
the yearning, thirsting heart.
3 But Christ, the Word made flesh,
Bids water turn to wine.
He fills our empty cups again
With grace and truth divine.
4 Come, friends, and share the feast;
Here drink the wine supplied
By Him who is both guest and host--
For us, the crucified.
5 For now He lives and reigns
through all eternity
With Father, Spirit, Three in One,
The glorious Trinity.
