Subject: RE: Need grace (thanks for food) songs
The following are selections from several camp-song sites. Again, some may be considered more reverent than others.


From http://a_scout.tripod.com/graces.htm, another prayer sung to "Hernando's Hideaway": CLICK HERE TO SEE ENTIRE LIST

GRACE (HERNANDO'S HIDEAWAY)

Be present at our table, Lord,
Be here and every where adored,
These morsels bless and grant that we,
May feast in paradise with thee. Amen.

BLESSINGS OF THIS DAY (Tune: "Gilligan's Island" Theme)
We thank Thee, Lord for giving us
The blessings of this day;
For friends and food and family,
And showing us the way.
The bounty that you set before
Us, proves to us you care.
We praise you, Lord, for showing us
Your presence everywhere.
So, join us at this table, Lord,
As we prepare to dine.
All that we have is sent from you;
And all we have is thine.
(Lyrics copyrighted 1996 by Clare Mansfield, GWRC)

GOD IS GOOD

God is great, God is good,
Let us thank him for our food,
We're gonna thank him morning noon and night,
We're gonna thank him 'cause he's out of sight
Amen-Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.

I'll post selections from the "A Prairie Home Companion songbook" in my next post.
