Morning Verse
The Sun with Loving Light,
Makes bright for me each day.
The soul with spirit power,
Gives strength unto my limbs.
In sunlight shining clear,
I reverence oh God.
The strength of human kind,
Which thou so graciously,
Hast planted in my soul.
That I with all my might,
May love to work and learn.
From thee comes light and strength,
To thee rise love and thanks.

Morning Tea Verse
Before the flour, the mill,
Before the mill, the grain,
Before the grain, the sun, the earth the rain,
The beauty of our will.

Lunch Verse
Earth who gives to us this food
Sun that makes it ripe and good
Dearest earth, dearest sun
Thanks to you we give each one
Blessings on our lunch.
Home Verse
Guarded from harm
Cared for by angels
Here we stand loving and strong
Truthful and good.
