Grace Before Meals

The following is from Brother John Samaha, S.M.

A BLESSING BEFORE MEALS

(Sing to the melody of Edelweiss)



Bless our friends, bless our food,
Come, O Lord, and be with us.
May our talk glow with peace,
Bring your love to surround us.

Friendship and peace,
May they bloom and grow,
Bloom and grow forever.
Bless our friends, bless our food,
Bless your people forever.

Nice! That makes me remember the sung grace before meals that we did when I worked at a Girl Scout camp. It was so fun to sing grace! This one was my favorite: "If we have earned the right to eat this bread, happy indeed are we. But if unmerited Thou givest to us, may we more thankful be."
