Text (1740) by John Cennick (1718-1755)


Be present at our table, Lord;

Be here and everywhere adored;

From Thy all-bounteous hand our food

May we receive with gratitude.


We humbly thank Thee, Lord our God,

For all Thy gifts on us bestowed;

And pray Thee, graciously to grant

The food which day by day we want.
