The day has dissipated into dusk,
and we have come together.
Each one of us our path has run,
and returned unhurt with setting sun
to enjoy our bonds that tether.
We thank you Lord for this reunion
and food that soon will satiate.
Continue to guard us through the night
until dark recedes from morning's light.
Our blessings we shall contemplate.
In the taking of this sustenance,
we express thanks for this good meal,
and remember Jesus who shared His plate
while telling of His pending fate.
May He know the gratitude we feel.
