Grace [Quam Dilecta version]


Grace (“Quam Dilecta” version
English Hymnal 508) )

God, you give living things
to eat, and give us life,
give wisdom as we sing
fitting respect to bring.

On living things we feed,
they give themselves for all.
As they fulfil our needs
make giving back our call.

In life we feed on you
your Bread and Wine our stay;
as you reveal your Way,
you make us always new.

‘Eat what’s set before you,’
Saint Francis did advise;
Nurturing God for you
our thanks and praise arise.
