Bless Our Gifts, Oh Lord
Bless us, Oh Lord, for these thy gifts
which we are about to receive
from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord
Table Grace of St. Brigid
I should like a great lake of the finest ale
For the King of Kings.
I should like a table of the choicest food
For the family of heaven.
Let the ale be made from the fruits of
faith, And the food be for giving love.
I should welcome the poor to my feast,
For they are God's children.
I should welcome the sick to my feast,
For they are God's joy.
Let the poor sit with Jesus at the highest
place, And the sick dance with the angels.
God bless the poor,
God bless the sick,
And bless our human race.
God bless our food,
God bless our drink,
All homes, O God, embrace.
