Table Graces

Dear God, we thank You for this food (gesture to food)
For rest (rest head on folded hands)
And home (arms form triangle “roof” over head)
And all that’s good. (Gesture outward)
For wind (spiral hands upward)
And rain (wiggle fingers downward like rain)
And sun above (arch arms overhead like a sun)
But most of all for those we love (gesture ourward to family)
*******************************
Before the flour the mill,
Before the mill the grain,
Before the grain, the sun, the earth, the rain,
The beauty of God’s will.
********************************
Earth who gives to us this food;
Sun who makes it ripe and good;
Dear Sun, dear Earth, by you we live,
To you our loving thanks we give
*********************************
An oldie but goodie from my childhood : )
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.
