There is no land in all the world
so pleasant as the table
set around with friends and food
whatsoever we are able
on a instant to lay out
for whosoever gathers round
to share the cheer and join the sound.
At first the chatter, lay the plates,
final touches, sit you down,
thank the Lord of bread and wine,
pass the supper, and we dine!
Oh, load the boards until they creak
and fill the seats and pass the cup
and settle in for joy and sup!
