O God, the father of lights from whom cometh down every good and perfect gift; mercifully look down upon our frailty, and grant unto us such sustenance as Thou knowest to be needful for us. In body and soul may we ever serve Thee with all love and gratitude. Amen.
(A William Nyce., and Hubert Bunyea. Grace Before Meals. Philadelphia, PA, 1911)
