"The Invitation" mural recently painted in the foyer of Highland Hills Baptist Church in Henderson, Nevada. Below the pictures, be sure to check out the lyrics to the song by Steven Curtis Chapman (of the same title) that inspired the mural.


Lyrics: "The Invitation"
written by Steven Curtis Chapman & Geoff Moore
From the recording: Speechless, Track #7.

(Matt 11:28; John 10:9
)

In the palace in the land of mercy
The King looked out from His throne
He saw the sick and the homeless and hungry
He saw me lost and without hope
And moved with compassion
He sent out His only Son
With the invitation to come

This is your invitation
Come just the way you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace
Come join the feast
Come in, this is your invitation

So I stood outside the gates and trembled
In my rags of unworthiness
Afraid to even stand at a distance
In the presence of holiness
But just as I turned to go
The gates swung open wide
And the King and His only Son
They invited me inside

This is your invitation
Come just the way you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace
Come join the feast
Come in, this is your invitation

So now will you come with me
To where the gates swing open wide
The King and His only Son
Are inviting us inside

This is our invitation
Come sinner as you are
Come find what your soul has been longing for
Come find your peace
Come join the feast
Come in, this is your invitation
This is our invitation
This is the invitation
