Grace for Children

Its hard to say grace,
When you are as hungry as a bear,
but everything tastes better
when you say a little thank you prayer.

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

God is Great
God is good
Thank you for this food
By His hand
Must all be fed
Thanks be to God
For this daily bread.

To God, who gives ud daily bread
A thankful song we raise
and pray that He who sends us food
Will fill our hearts with praise.

Dear God,
I gratefully bow my head
To thank you for this daily bread
and may there be a goodly share
On every table everywhere.

Bless the food on our table
Keep us healthy
Strong and able

Come Lord Jesus, be our guest
and let thy gifts to us be blessed.

Be present at our table,Lord
Be here and everywhere adored.
These morsels bless, and grant that we
may feast in Paradise with Thee.

Thank you God
for milk and bread
and other things so good.
Thank you God
for those who help
to grow and cook my food.

For health and food,
for love and friends,
for everything
Thy goodness sends
Father in Heaven
We thank thee

God bless the master of
this house.
God bless the mistress too
and all the little children
That round the table go
Old English

Bless us,O Lord
and these, thy gifts
Which we are about to receive
from Thy bounty
through Christ our Lord

We thank Thee, Lord
for happy hearts,
For rain and sunny weather
We thank Thee, Lord
for this our food
And that we are together

Thou openest
Thy hand, O Lord
The earth is filled with good
Teach us with grateful
hearts to take
From Thee, our daily food.

Heavenly Father,
Bless this food
To Thy glory
and our good.

Father, as I come to eat
Bless me and the milk and meat
Give me an appetite
and then strength to do Your work.

Bless Thou the work
that we have done
Be it great or small
On this, our food
On us, each one
Let now Thy blessing fall.

For this our daily food,
for health and happiness
Give us a thankful heart
A thankful heart,dear Lord.

Father in Heaven
we ask of Thee
A blessing on each
plant and tree
Bless Thou each fruit
and bless each seed
and let them bear
the food we need.
Then bless the food
before we eat
Bless Thou the bread
and bless the meat
May all who share
these gifts today
Be blessed by Thee
we humbly pray.
