Grace

To be sung before and after meat. (Meat is used here in the older, general meaning of “food”)

Blessings Invoked
Be present at our table, Lord,
Be here and every where adored;
These mercies bless, and grant that we
May feast in Paradise with Thee.

Thanks Returned
We thank Thee, Lord, for this our food,
For life, and health, and every good:
Let manna to our souls be given,–
The Bread of Life sent down from heaven.

From its position in the hymnal, I believe this is to be sung to the tune “Old Hundred” from yesterday.~~TSG
