Please share your favorite table grace

requests for table graces, if you use one regularly and don't compose on the spot. In our family we always sung table grace and it is one of my favorite things from my childhood. here is the sung grace we have been doing lately

Lord, bless this food and grant that we
may grateful for thy mercies by
teach us to know by whom we've fed
bless us with Christ the Living Bread. (Amen)

I know it isn't a traditional "request for prayer thread", but I'd love to read your family's favorite.

Re: Please share your favorite table grace

We say "Come Lord Jesus be our guest, let this food to us be blesed...and please take care of America". The last phrase is what my LO's daycare added to our usual prayer.

My Grandparents said
"Be present at our table, Lord!
Be here and everywhere adored.
Your mercies bless, and grant that we
May feast in Paradise with Thee"

There's a bunch of other ones here if you're intrested...

Re: Please share your favorite table grace

my kids/nieces say
"God is great, God is good.
Let us thank him for our food.
By His hands, we are fed.
Thank you Lord for dialy bread.
Amen"

Its the same prayer we said at my grandma's house growing up(at home we just took turns saying grace)

Re: Please share your favorite table grace

When I was growing up:
"Come, Lord Jesus, be our Guest,
Let this food to us be blessed, Amen"

Now:
Bless us oh Lord and these thy gifts
which we are about to receive
from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen"

Then we take turns adding special prayers.

We have different ones- "bless us oh lord..." is traditional and we add but my dd likes to sing (from dc)
"God our father,
God our father,
once again,
once again
we will ask your blessing
we will ask your blessing
a...men
a...men"
It is sung to the tune of "are you sleeping"
everytime we sit to eat dd asks "time for God our father yet?" I love it!

Ooooh, My godparents always sang "God our Father" except they sang "thank you for your blessings" instead of "we will ask for your blessing".

I think sometime this weekend we will choose a dinner idea, from my other thread and and different grace from this one.
