Ancient Celtic Hospitality Rune

I love this ancient Celtic rune, which I mentioned in Celtic Treasure. I've seen it quoted in many retreat houses across the country. It's a wonderfully warm welcoming poem and a timely reminder to be thankful for all God has given us:

We saw a stranger yesterday
We put food in the eating place,
Drink in the drinking place,
Music in the listening place,
And with the sacred name of the triune God
He blessed us and our house,
our cattle and our dear ones.
As the lark says in our song:
Often, often, often goes the Christ
In the stranger's guise.
(Taken from p.70 Celtic Treasure)
