Written for a Probus Luncheon and based on a half-remembered original
Dear Lord, thank you for the food we eat,
the drink we sup and the people we meet.
And before we sit to take our cheer,
let us remember those who are not here.
Dear Lord, we humbly extend our prayer
to all today who need your care.
As we enjoy this fine repast,
may your love hold them to the last.
