Let us take a moment
The Lord is good to me,
To thank God for our food, For friends around the table And everything thatâ€™s good.
And so I thank the Lord For giving me the things I need, The sun, the rain, the appleseed. The Lord is good to me.
Gentle and good
May my hands be helping hands For all that must be done That fetch and carry, lift and hold And make the hard jobs fun. May my hands be clever hands In all I make and do With sand and dough and clay and things With paper, paint and glue. May my hands be gentle hands And may I never dare To poke and prod and hurt and harm But touch with love and care.
The Lordâ€™s Prayer
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.
