A Daily Grace

Bless this food, O God, we pray;
Consecrate it, Lord, today.
Make it sound, pure and whole,
And nutritious for the soul.
Take away, Lord, everything
That would make us ill within.
All that cause harm or pain—
From such, may we abstain.
Thank you for a valid mind,
As we sit, converse and dine.
Give ear to these blessings said
And wholeness to our daily bread.
