Let us give thanks to God our Father for all the gifts so freely bestowed upon us:

For the beauty and wonder of your creation,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For all that is gracious in the lives of men and women, revealing the image of Christ,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For our daily food and drink, our homes and families, and our friends,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For minds to think, and hearts to love, and hand hands to serve,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For health and strength to work, and leisure to rest and play,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For the brave and courageous, who are patient in suffering and faithful in adversity,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For valiant seekers after truth, liberty, and justice,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

For the communion of saints in all times and places,

WE THANK YOU, O LORD.

Above all we give you thanks for the great mercies and promises given to us in Christ Jesus our Lord;

TO HIM BE PRAISE AND GLORY, WITH YOU, O FATHER,

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, NOW AND FOR EVER.  AMEN.

May the LORD bless us and take care of us;

May the LORD be kind and gracious to us;

May the LORD look on us with favor and give us peace.

AMEN.
