The Celtic Rune of Hospitality

Alfred Burt Carol arr. Jimmy Joyce
sung by Musickes Pleasure

I saw a stranger yesterday;
I put food in the eating place,
drink in the drinking place,
music in the listening place;
and in the sacred name of the Triune God
he blessed myself and my house,
my cattle and my dear ones,
and the lark said in her song:
Oft, Oft, Oft,
goes Christ in the stranger’s guise.
