You got a short version of a very much used grace. Here is the full text:

I Jesu navn
går vi til bords
å spise, drikke på ditt ord.
Deg, Gud til ære, oss til gavn,
Så får vi mat i Jesu navn.

Amen.

Translated:

In Jesus' name
We go to the table
To eat and drink at your Word
You, God, to honor, We, to receive,
So we receive food in Jesus' name.

Amen.

I found the translation on this site:

Some years ago that was the most used Table prayer. We sang it or said it before every meal.
Today in Norway another grace is more common:

Å du som metter liten fugl, velsign vår mat o Gud

My translation:
Thou who feed the little bird, bless our food, oh God

When we have finished a meal everybody say: "Takk for maten!" to the hostess. ("Thank you for the food")
