A Hymn To Cheese

One of my pals attending our Openhouse, wrote and sent this to me today. Knowing my love of cheeses– he scored. Thanks Luke.

What a friend we have in Cheeses,
To our macaroni share!
What a privilege to marry
Cheese and pasta with great care!

Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not marry
Cheese and pasta with great care!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take a bit of cheese and dare.

Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our fondue share?
Cheeses know our every weakness;
Take a bit of cheese and dare

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Cheeses, still our refuge—
Take a bit of cheese and dare.

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take a bit of cheese and dare!
In the cheese sauce comfort shields thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Blessed Cheeses, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
May we ever cheeses bringing
Free our souls from every care.

Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
There will be no need for fare—
Rapture, praise, and endless worship
Will be our cheese portion there.
