I Cannot Come / The Wedding Banquet Song

This hymn about discipleship was written by American Medical Mission Sister Miriam Therese Winter.  It is based on the parable of the wedding banquet, from Matthew 22.

It was originally published in Winter's 1966, collection "Joy is Like the Rain".   It has subsequently been published in other books, including Songlines, with some alternations to make the lyrics more inclusive.

A rough outline of the song is:

Chorus:
I cannot come: I cannot come to the banquet ....

1   A certain man held a feast on his fine estate ....

2   The master rose up in anger ...

3   When all the poor had assembled ...

4   Now God has written a lesson ...
