This day we set aside to give You thanks.
You have blessed us in so many ways:
In the beauty and richness of our land,
In the freedom we enjoy to know and love You,
And for Your surpassing goodness and
bountiful offering at our table.
You have given us even greater gifts of family and friends
Who love and care for us.
Bless this wonderful meal and each one of us.
I ask this through Christ our Lord.
