We thank you, Lord. Amen.


God of goodness, bless our food
Keep us in a pleasant mood
Bless the cook and all who serve us
From indigestion, Lord, preserve us

From an American place mat

Come Lord Jesus, be our guest
And may our meal by you be blessed. Amen.


Lord, bless this food upon these dishes,
As thou didst bless the loaves and fishes,
And like the sugar in the tea
May all of us be stirred by Thee

Lord, as you shared food with your friends in Galilee,
may this meal make us all grow in friendship.
May God bless this food, and this day,
And keep us safe in every way.

As we prepare to eat our dinners.

And keep us all alive

And just enough for five. Amen.

God bless this bunch
As we munch our lunch. Amen


For the company we keep, and the food
we are about to eat, we thank you, Lord.

Us and this, God bless.

A Quaker Grace

Some hae meat and canna eat,
and some wad eat that want it,
but we hae meat and we can eat,
and sae the Lord be thankit.

Lord, your praise, we all exude;
Now in us your love imbued,
As we come, to eat our food.
So from us our sins exclude,
And we pray, your grace include.
