By the oaks of Mamre
Abraham and Sarah received some company
He promised a piece of bread
they got a marvelous feast instead
they had some important thing to proclaim
Abraham would have a child to bear his name.
Abraham set before them a noble plate,
under the tree–there they ate
and they revealed the coming of a heir
in a line which would yield
the incarnate Son of God lovely and fair
whose kingdom is a “sell-all-and-buy-this field”
and who is precious as no pearl can compare.
But let’s pull out another lesson now
don’t get weighed down by selfish cares
invite some friends and make some chow
by hard work you can pull it off somehow
for in hospitality God often visits His people unawares.
