We enjoyed this meal after hearing a sermon on Psalm 75. This marks the halfway point in our pastor's preaching through the book of Psalms. In his introductory remarks, JCMIII marveled at how this divine poetry *gets inside us*. Despite the vernacular, I grasp his meaning and concur.
My prayer is that the words of the psalmist(s) become so familiar to me that they would always come easy in conversation. Even more so, I hope that they spill out of my mouth when I am old and gray, and perhaps not in my right mind.
Then this food, this bread, this Word of God, would truly be a blessing.
We closed the service by singing Psalm 75 to the tune Belmont C.M.
Here's the paraphrase ~

Bless this food, O Lord,
and us to Thy service.
In Jesus' Name, I pray
