Table Grace: Thank You for the Bounty

Here’s a table grace from the Catholic Health Association of the United States website.

Table Grace

Lord, as we gather here before this table,
we pause to give thanks for the bounty of the earth
from which this meal came forth.

We give thanks also for the hands
that harvested it,
prepared it,
and now serve it.

We remember that all we have in this world
is first a gift from you
that requires the collaboration of human hands.

Through our sharing in this food,
may we be nourished in heart, mind, and body,
so that we might more fully collaborate in bringing to fruition
the gifts that you have given to us.
We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen
