thanksgiving

Almighty God,
we offer you hearty thanks
for your goodness and care
in giving to us the fruits of the earth
in their seasons.
Give us grace to enjoy them rightly,
to your glory,
for the relief of those in need,
and our own well-being;
through Jesus Christ, the living Bread,
who came down from heaven
and gives life to the world,
and who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
