“Come Lord Jesus” – A Table Prayer (in Greek)

I was cleaning my home study and came across a scrap of paper with the following words in Greek:

̓Έρχου κύριε  Ἰησοῦ 
μεῖνον μεθ ͗ ἡμῶν. 
Εὐλόγησον ἡμᾶς
καὶ ταῦτα δόματα τῶν οὐρανῶν. 

For those of you who don't read Greek, here is a literal translation:

Come Lord Jesus,
Stay with Us.
Bless us and these gifts of heaven.

Some further thought on the Greek:

̓Έρχου κύριε  Ἰησοῦ (Rev. 22:20)
μεῖνον μεθ ͗ ἡμῶν. (Luke 24:29)
Εὐλόγησον ἡμᾶς
καὶ ταῦτα δόματα τῶν οὐρανῶν. (Matthew 7:11; Ephesians 4:8)
