For food, for raiment,
For life, for opportunity,
For friendship and fellowship,
We thank thee, O Lord. Amen.

Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts that we are
About to receive from your goodness, through
Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Grace After Meals
Almighty God, who livest and reignest forever,
We give thee thanks for all thy benefits.
May the souls of the faithful departed,
Through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Day is Done
Tune: Taps bugle Call
Day is done, Gone the sun, From the lake,
From the hills, From the sky,
All is well, Safely rest, God is nigh.
Thanks and praise, For our days,
`Neath the sun, `Neath the stars, `Neath the sky,
As we go, This we know, God is nigh.
God of the mountains and hills, make me tall and strong;
Tall enough and strong enough to right some wrong.
God of the stars, make me steadfast and sure;
God of every lake and stream, flow through my life and make it clean;
Let me do nothing base or mean.
God of the trees and woods, keep me fresh and pure;
God of the rain, wash from my life all dirt and stain;
Pure and strong let me remain.
God of the seed and soil, plant in my heart thy love;
God of the darkness and day, through shadows or light, be my stay.
Guide thou my way.
God of the radiant sun, light thou my life;
God of the glorious dawn, make each day a fresh start.
God of the free birds, sing in my heart.
God of the surging waves and sea, wide horizons give to me;
Help me to see the world as thou wouldst have it be;
God of the lovely rose, make me lovely, too;
God of the morning dew, each day my faith renew.
God of all growing things, keep me growing, too.
