RedCloud: Yeshua tells a story of the Kingdom of Yahweh/ It’s like a king who threw a wedding banquet for his son one day / Sent out servant after servant / To call invited guests Yet none of them arrived / His wedding party was a mess / Sent another round of servants instructed to tell them please / So much food is on the table / Come partake in the feast / They only shrugged their shoulders and took off and shook the spot / One went off to weed his garden the other worked in his shop / My servants, my people look at this splendid array / But there’s no guests the one’s invited aren’t up for it they say / Go out to the busiest intersections in town / And invite anyone you find just standing around /
(CHAT CHORUS) / The servants went out to the streets and rounded and gathered / Everyone that they laid eyes on—bad or good didn’t matter So in walked the King and now you know why I say this / That many get invited, but so few can make it. Jenkins: Whosoever, whosoever even fellas on the side / Live forever, live forever–invitation bonafide yeah / You’ve seen that enemy / You’ve heard his lullaby / So sing the remedy, and fall in for the time is nigh. So few can make it / Many get invited, but so few can make it / Whosoever, whosoever / So few can make it / Many get invited, but so few can make it!
