Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

Thanks very much for your patience; my apologies that you did not receive an earlier answer.

I hope you like this one:

Dear Lord, we thank you for these 'vittles'
may they add to our souls
and not to our middles

We are gathered tonight, to honor the best
with good food and good wine, while beautifully dressed
to receive their awards, all so well deserved,
while we enjoy the Lord's bounty, about to be served
Amen

Hi

need more of an amusing answer

Expert:  Cher replied 5 years ago.
Hi again, and thanks for your reply.

By more 'amusing', do you mean more humorous?

Also, would you like it to be longer, or is this length alright?

Do you like the rhyming aspect?

How 'religious' do you want it to be? Less religious and more humorous? How about the references to the reason you're there and the people receiving awards? What type of awards are being given out at the dinner?

Thanks for all your additional detail.

definitely longer on the humour side and less on the religious.....awards are all sales related at a Recruitment Company`s annual awards dinner.....I am the Managing Director

Hi again, and thanks for your reply with additional information.

Please allow me some time to work on this for you.

By when do you need it?

How long (how many minutes) would you like it to be?

Regards,
Cher
