Though our mouths were full of song as the sea,
And our tongues of exultation as the multitude of its waves,
And our lips of praise as the wide-extended firmament;
Though our eyes shone with light like the sun and the moon,
And our hands were spread forth like the eagles of heaven,
And our feet were swift as hinds;
We should still be unable
To thank Thee and bless Thy name,
O Lord our God and God of our fathers,
for one thousandth
or one ten-thousandth
of the bounties which Thou has bestowed
Upon our fathers and upon us.
The Hebrew Prayer Book
Wishing all of you, Dear Friends, a bounty of blessings on this Thanksgiving Day.
(The beautiful prayer? Lifted from this book that graces our Family Table. I’m giving away a copy on the Plan to Eat blog this week. Click on over to put your name in the hat? Whisper some new words of grace and thanksgiving over your own table?)
