Hymn Lyrics for Mark 2:18-22

The Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, Arrived

To the tune: DUNDEE God Moves in a Mysterious Way. Based on Mark 2:18-22. Words: William Weber, 2011.

v. 1
The Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, arrived
upon this earthly scene,
was calling people to Himself,
the sinful and unclean.

v. 2
The Bridegroom and His people ate,
no fasting in their midst.
Disciples from the Pharisees,
How can this be? they hissed.

v. 3
The Father’s Gift incomparable
was present now with them,
and joy at such a wondrous Gift
should never be condemned.

v. 4
And joy is still the right response
to Him who died and rose.
The old has gone, the new has come,
for those the Bridegroom knows.

v. 5
For Jesus Christ our glor-ious Lord
departed for a time.
He died our death, but from the tomb,
the third day He did rise.

v. 6
And now with Him we live our lives
with joy before His face.
The Spirit lifts our hearts to Him,
for mercy, life and grace.

Here is the beginning of my post. And here is the rest of it.
