Hymn at Table

Kind Lord who bore the Cross,
Source of all our light,
All-creative, gracious, Word-begot,
Now made flesh within the Virgin's womb,
Yet mighty in your Father, first,
Before the stars, or earth, or seas were made.

Turn your saving face, I pray,
Upon this fertile scene,
That with your peace, and in your light,
And under your ennobling name,
We may enjoy this food.

Without you, Lord, nothing is sweet;
Whatever we eat dissatisfies;
Unless our food and drink
Are savored first, by sanctifying faith,
Tinged with Christ's own favor.

So let our simple bread bear the taste of God.
May Christ flow within our cups.
May the threefold holiness above
Direct our sober words, and jests,
Our laughter and our talk,
Whatever we do, and all we are.

from a table prayer by
Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, early 5th century
