“The Rune of Hospitality”

‘I saw a stranger yestreen. I put food in the eating place,

And in the sacred name of the Triune he blessed myself and my house,
my cattle and my dear ones

And the lark said in her song, often often often.
Goes the Christ in stranger’s guise, often often often.
Goes the Christ in stranger’s guise’.
