Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving feastO most merciful Father, who hast blessed the labours of the husbandman in the returns of the fruits of the earth: We give thee humble and hearty thanks for this thy bounty; beseeching thee to continue thy loving–kindness to us, that our land may still yield her increase, to thy glory and our comfort; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast graciously given to us the fruits of the earth in their season: We yield thee humble and hearty thanks for these thy bounties, beseeching thee to give us grace rightly to use them to thy glory and the relief of those that need; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people, that they who have freely received of thy bounty, may of thy bounty, freely give; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O Lord Jesus Christ, who hast taught us that man doth not live by bread alone: Feed us, we humbly beseech thee, with the true Bread that cometh down from heaven, even thyself, O blessed Saviour; who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
