Don't Say Grace

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Don't say grace before you dine
Just make God a guest
Set a place with sparkling wine
Serve the very best

Don't say grace before you dine
Just make God a dish
Cook it right with flavors fine
Fill the tender wish

Don't say grace before you dine
Just make God a friend
Speak a while with cordial sign
Start the genial trend

Don't say grace before you dine
Just make God a toast
Lift a glass with rhythmic line
Be the perfect host

Don't say grace before you dine
Just make God a part
Flash a smile with luster shine
Feed the hungry heart
