O Almighty God, most merciful Father, you who open your gracious hand so that all living things have their food in due season, we give honor, praise, and thanks to you for all your benefits both spiritually and bodily, which you have richly poured upon us without any of our desiring. But we especially thank you for this worthy memorial of our redemption in which you have nourished and fed our souls with the body and blood of your dear Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, blessed forever. Amen.
