Hymn/Song Information

GRACE BEFORE MEAT




Fountain of being, Source of good,
At whose almighty breath
The create proves our bane of food,
Dispensing life or death;


Thee we address with humble fear;
Vouchsafe thy gifts to crown:
Father of all, thy children hear,
And send a blessing down.


O may our souls forever pine
Thy grace to taste and see;
Athirst for righteousness divine,
And hungry after thee.


For this we lift our longing eyes
We wait the gracious word:
Speak, and our hearts from earth shall rise,
And feed upon the Lord.
