Lyrics of All Around This World version

May you all prosper, may good things keep flowing
For we are now leaving and homeward are going
We had such a good time at your celebration
We’ve not seen one better across the whole nation
May harvests of plenty reward your endeavor
Your storehouse be laden with good food forever
Your ovens shall send forth the smell of good roasting
And for an occasion a glassful for toasting
