The Last Supper
Words and Music by: Larry Norman There was a pig on the table With a fig in his mouth And a snake crawled around the plate And when the wine turned to water And the bread turned to dust I knew I'd arrived too late. It was the last supper A seven course meal for the soul It was the last supper And I was the last to know. I saw my name in a book That lay in front of the veil With a key in between the pages And when I unlocked the door I found a hall full of mirrors And I saw my life in stages. It was the last supper And a snake crawled around the plate It was the last supper And I knew I'd arrived too late. Last night I came to the gates With invitation in hand And my old life left behind I came as soon as He called But long before I had planned Still I came prepared to dine. It was the last supper The snake crawled around the plate It was the last supper And I knew I'd arrived too late.
