Heavenly Father, kind and good, Thanks we offer for this food...
O Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on us! Lord, cleanse us from our sins! Master, pardon our transgressions!...
Be present at our table, Lord, Be here and everywhere adored…
God is great! God is good!...
Thank you, Father, for bread and meat. Thank you for the friends we meet...
We close our eyes, We bow our heads...
Bless us O Lord, and these thy gifts, Which we are about to receive...
Oh, the Lord is good to me, And so I thank the Lord...
O Lord my God, I bless thy holy name for this mercy, which I have now received from thy bounty and goodness...
God is great and God is good, And we thank him for our food…
DIDN'T FIND WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR?
Giving to Those in Need
May I become at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without protection
A guide for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A bridge for those with rivers to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those without light
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter
And a servant to all in need.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama
