816. Be Present at Our Table, Lord

1 Be present at our table, Lord;
be here and everywhere adored,
from your all-bounteous hand our food
may we receive with gratitude.

2 Praise God, who gives our daily bread
and has again our table spread.
May he with all his gifts impart
his crowning gift, a thankful heart.
