AND be kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.
Be therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also has loved us.
And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts.

We plough the fields, and scatter the good seed on the land;
But it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand.
He sends the snow in winter,
The warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine,
And soft refreshing rain.

All good gifts around us
Are sent from heaven above:
Then thank the Lord, oh, thank the Lord,
For all his love!

We thank You, then, O Father,
For all things bright and good,
The seed-time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food.

Accept the gifts we offer
For all Your love imparts.
And – what thou most desires –
Our humble, thankful hearts.
All good gifts around us
Are sent from heaven above:
Then thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord, For all his love.

O LORD whose sleepless providence shelters and sustains us through darkness and danger: our hearts rise to You in gratitude and trust.
To Your service we dedicate our time and talents, all that we are and have, asking renewed light and strength for all our needs.
Father, fill us with Your own Spirit of justice, mercy, and truth.
May Your will be ours in duty and in trial, and in acquaintance, with You may our souls find peace. Amen.
