Our Father Who art in heaven, we would not partake of these bounties without returning most hearty thanks to Thee, from whom the earth receives
her increase. Thou hast supplied us with the bounties of life, for which our hearts go out in thankfulness to Thee. Bless, we pray Thee, these provisions to the nourishment of our bodies, and ourselves to Thy service. Amen.
