A grace before meals, by Richard Euringer

O Lord, You clothe the lilies,
And feed the birds of the sky,
You lead the lambs to the pasture,
And the deer to the waterside,
You have multiplied the loaves and fishes,
And converted water into wine;
O Lord, come to our table
As Guest and Giver to dine.

The above is my interpretation of the original, which is written in King James Version verbiage:

O Thou who clothest the lilies,
And feedest the birds of the sky,
Who leadest the lambs to the pasture,
And the hart to the waterside,
Who hast multiplied the loaves and fishes,
And converted water into wine;
Do Thou come to our table
As Guest and Giver to dine.
