Text Information:

Seems to be a recasting of "Blessing to God, Forever Blest," no example of which appears to be on hymnary.org:

Blessing to God, for ever blest,
To God the Master of the feast,
Who hath for us a table spread,
And with his daily bounties fed;
May he with all his gifts impart
The crown of all - a thankful heart!
