Blest are you, Lord,
God of all creation,
Through your love
We have this bread to share,
Which earth has giv’n
And human hands have made.
It will become the bread of life.

Blest are you, Lord,
God of all creation,
Through your love
We have this wine to share,
Fruit of the vine
and the work of human hands,
It will become the blood of Christ.

We thank you, Lord,
For these gifts of love;
And for this day,
and all that you have done.
We ask you, Lord,
to bless us all this day.
We pray that in your love we will be one.

Blest are you, Lord,
God of all creation.
Through your love
we have this bread and wine,
Gifts from the earth
and the work of human hands,
They will become our way of life.
Blest are you, Lord.
