    Here we gather, dear All-Father,
Round Thy table to be fed.

'Tis Thy gift,—our daily bread.

As we gather to be fed
Nations plead for daily bread,—
Fighting son and anguished mother,
Orphaned children,—all together
Pray to thee for daily bread.
At Thy common table, Father,
Ask we all for daily bread.

God, All-Father, hear our prayer!
Move our hearts and minds to share
With Thy children at Thy table
This, Thy gift of daily bread,—
Sacred gift of daily bread!

Lest they perish, swift and eager
Share we now our daily bread.
Give through us, O great All-Father,
To Thy children, daily bread!

Sarah Louise Arnold
