We thank you for your gracious hospitality.
We found your home* a very pleasant place to be.
The fellowship and food has certainly been good!
How dear are Christian friends like you
who serve so royally!
We surely hope that we have been a blessing, too.
We know we can’t repay you for your kindness true,
but as we go our way, we hope and also pray
that God will grant you many joys
your whole life through!
*substitute appropriate word: church, school, camp, table, etc.
