Wounded and forsaken
I was shattered by the fall
Broken and forgotten
Feeling lost and all alone
Summoned by the King
Into the Master’s courts
Lifted by the Savior
And cradled in His arms

I was carried to the table
Seated where I don’t belong
Carried to the table
Swept away by His love
And I don’t see my brokenness anymore
When I’m seated at the table of the Lord
I’m carried to the table
The table of the Lord

Fighting thoughts of fear
And wondering why He called my name
Am I good enough to share this cup
This world has left me lame
Even in my weakness
The Savior called my name
In His Holy presence
I’m healed and unashamed

You carried me, my God
You carried me

    General Commentlook at 2 Samuel 4:4 and then again 2 Samuel 9. Its about a guy named Mephiboseth. He was a son of Jonathan. He was taken by a servent of Jonathan. His servant dropped Mephiboseth. Time past and David summoned him. Mephiboseth wondered why he was calling him. Usually during that time, it was tradition to kill off the past kings line. The past King was Saul, so Mephiboseth was in that line. He thought David was going to kill him. David really wanted to show kindness to him, because of the kindness Jonathan (Mephiboseth father) showed to him. So David brought him to the table. Where he didn't belong.

    General Commentummm sorry to rain on your parade...and everything that you said is true. but the song says nothing of the table of david or saul....it is talking about the table of the lord. which you can find in revelation

    General CommentThe idea of being carried to a table to which we don't belong, is true. I saw them in concert with Casting Crowns, and in concert Leeland talked about the story in Samuel, and likened it to being at the table of the Lord, i.e. being somewhere we don't belong. Where is the table of the Lord mentioned in revelation? I don't remember anything about it in there, and i did a bible gateway search for "Table" "Lord's Table" "Feast" "Banquet" and Seated" there was nothing turned up for us sitting at the table of the Lord there.

    General CommentI also think he does talk about it in the beginning, listen to this our of 2 Samuel 4:4: 4 (Jonathan son of Saul had a son who was lame in both feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel. His nurse picked him up and fled, but as she hurried to leave, he fell and became crippled. His name was Mephibosheth.) Now contrast to the first few lines: Wounded and forsaken/I was shattered by the fall. Now look at 2 Samuel 9:1 - 3, 5 - 7 1 David asked, "Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan's sake?"

    2 Now there was a servant of Saul's household named Ziba. They called him to appear before David, and the king said to him, "Are you Ziba?"
    "Your servant," he replied.

    3 The king asked, "Is there no one still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show God's kindness?"
    Ziba answered the king, "There is still a son of Jonathan; he is crippled in both feet."

    5 So King David had him brought from Lo Debar, from the house of Makir son of Ammiel.

    6 When Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, came to David, he bowed down to pay him honor.
    David said, "Mephibosheth!"
    "Your servant," he replied.

    7 "Don't be afraid," David said to him, "for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table."
    Now look at this: Broken and forgotten/Feeling lost and all alone/Summoned by the King/Into the Master’s courts
    Leeland just makes it more personal to us the, when he makes it about us an God.

    General CommentOkay i am sorry....I WAS TOTALLY WRONG...The writer was talking about both. I found an interview about that song. He talks about how David invited Mephibosheth to his table.
    Mephibosheth was crippled and to be crippled in those days it was the lowest of lows. And he said that without Christ we are crippled.

    That is what the song means by the authors words.
    I am sorry
