Michtam presents the song" I cannot come to the banquet".. Originally written by the Meriam sisters. The covers are performed by Mrs.Sobana accompanied by her son, Chriz.

Chorus:
I cannot come.
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now.
I have married a wife.
I have bought me a cow.
I have fields and commitments
that cost a pretty sum.
Pray, hold me excused,
I cannot come.

Verse 1
A certain man held a feast on his fine estate in town.
He laid a festive table and wore a wedding gown.
He sent invitations to his neighbors far and wide
but when the meal was ready, each of them replied:

Chorus

Verse 2
The master rose up in anger, called his servants by name,
said: "Go into the town, fetch the blind and the lame,
Fetch the peasant and the pauper for this I have willed,
My banquet must be crowded, and my table must be filled."

Chorus

Verse 3
When all the poor had assembled,
there was still room to spare,
so the master demanded: "Go search ev'rywhere,
to the highways and the byways
and force them to come in.
My table must be filled before the banquet can begin.?

Chorus


Glory Honour and praise be to God alone.
