Representative Text

1 Our table now with food is spread;
O God, who givest daily bread,
Bless these Thy gifts upon us so
That strength of body they bestow.

2 O feed the hungry, God of love,
Who sigh for bread to Heav'n above;
Give to our land prosperity,
And bless the earth, the sky, the sea!

3 Defend and bless our government,
And give us all a mind content!
O grant our souls the heav'nly food
Which Jesus purchased with His blood.
