Come, Lord Jesus, our guest to be
And bless these gifts bestowed by Thee.
And bless our loved ones everywhere,
And keep them in Your loving care.
- traditional Moravian blessing
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
We give you thanks O Lord.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (last line added)
Almighty and gracious Father,
we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season
and for the labors of those who harvest them.
Make us, we ask you, faithful stewards of your great bounty,
to supply our needs and to relieve those who are in need,
to the glory of your Name.
