Saying Grace

Sung Grace:

All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above. Then thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord for all his love.

Thank you Lord for giving us food, right where we are. Amen!

Thank you for the world so sweet, thank you for the food we eat, thank you for the birds that sing, thank you, God for everything.

For health and strength and daily food, we praise your name, O God. (may be sung as a round)

Said Grace:

For what we are about to receive may the Lord make us truly thankful.

Bless us oh Lord for these thy gifts that we’re about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Lord, bless those that sit at this table, the food that is on it, and those who prepared it. Amen.

God we thank you for our food, for work and play and all that’s good, for wind and rain and sun above, but most of all for your great love.

Thou who has given so much to me, give one thing more, a grateful heart. (George Herbert)

Come Lord Jesus, be our guest, and may our meal by you be blest.

Give thanks to the LORD,a for he is good; his love endures forever. (Psalm 107.1)

Humorous Graces:

God, bless this bunch as they munch their lunch.

For well filled plate and brimming cup and freedom from the washing up, we thank you, Lord.

Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub.

Down head, up paws, thank God we’ve jaws.
