Thanks for All Food!

Thank you God for all food,

grown, raised, bought, served;

for all food,

tangy, spicy, salty, sweet;

for all food,

crunchy, juicy, chewy, smooth;

for all food,

baked, boiled, roasted, raw.

For all food,

thanks, praise, glory, honour

to our Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
Bless this food to our use,

and us to your service. Amen.
