Dinner a La King

Thousands gathered to hear Him speak
And surely their stomachs were growling
Yet He would not let them grow hungry nor weak
For His glory, to be unleashed was howling

He fed them first upon His word
Philip had no food, yet He gathered
The crowd to sit and prepare to dine
On a meal miraculous, a gift divine

No restaurants nor stores nearby
No food from shelves stacked very high
Yet these He does not ever need
In order for a few thousand mouths to feed

He needs nothing never, not even you or me
No, for you see, He is the anti-need
Yes, He is all-sufficiency indeed
And once He rolled up His sleeves
And came to serve a bunch of thieves

A King serving dinner to beggars
This is good news indeed

- A. B. Seal
(inspired by the 6th chapter of the Gospel of John)
