FOOD ABUNDANT (a sung table grace for festal meals)
Text: H. C. Strandskov, 2006
Tune: Silver Bells
(Here’s a table grace to sing for Thanksgiving dinner, the Christmas Eve meal, or Christmas dinner. Everyone should know the tune, but it would be especially fun if someone can accompany on a piano or keyboard. If you try it, send me an email and let me know how it went and what the occasion was.)
Food abundant, festive table, fellowship’s healing warmth:
Here we gather to savor God’s goodness.
Bless the sunlight, bless the rainfall, bless this bountiful earth -
And for this joyous feast we will sing:
“We give thanks, thanks for food,
Thanks for our families and friendships;
We give thanks, thanks to God,
Thanks for the gifts of our world.”
