"Without Thy presence, nought, O Lord, is sweet, No pleasure to our lips can aught supply. Whether 'tis wine we drink or food we eat, Till Grace divine and Faith shall sanctify."
~ Prudentius, a 5th century Christian poet, from his Ante cibum, describing the Christian practice of "saying grace" before meals.
