Farewell Prayer

All the sacred beings who have shared time with us today,
have shared in our meal,
have received the offerings we have given with hearts of gratitude,
have heard the words of praise we have spoken,
the songs of beauty we have sung:
we wish you well, departing guests,
on your way from our home to yours.
Go as friends, who, as we well know, are great in hospitality,
whose ready invitations to your well-famed feasts we await eagerly,
happy to come when called,
to receive with gratitude your inevitable gifts,
and to invite you to come again to dine with us.
