kitchen prayer

Lord, bless this food that I prepare
And bless the chores I do;
And as I serve the ones I love
May I remember You.
a

Then when I bend my knee to scrub
Or face a task with dread,
May I remember that's the time
To lift my eyes instead.

For everything is there to see
And all around us lies
The mud that's tracked in underfoot
Or rainbows in the skies.

So may I choose the good to see -
The beauty in each day.
And may a song be on my lips
At work and rest and play.
b
And may each day a challenge bring
To make my home a place
Where peace and joy and happiness
Shine bright on every face.
