Be present at our table, Lord

Be present at our table, Lord.
Be here and everywhere adored.
These mercies bless and grant that we
may feast in paradise with thee.

(and grant that we may live and work today with thee.)


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.

Words:  John Cennick, Sacred Hymns for the Children of God, 1741
Tune:  Louis Bourgeois, Genevan Psalter, 1551
