The Afternoon Hides Its Face

The afternoon hides its face,
The road has been long,
Our feet are tired
And our bodies seek rest.

Stay with us at home, bright presence!
We have bread and a little wine.
Renew us with your words of life,
Give us the light of your tenderness,
Bless the table, let’s eat together
Let’s renew our strength,
Life goes on…
