O Author, Composer, Sculptor, Creator of All we can imagine,
You are the Parent to us all, to Creation itself.
You have ordered the plots, music and shapes of our existence.
Your inspired outline will be followed by all Creation.
You sustain our hope on Earth with Your love.
For the education we received together fifty years ago, We thank You.
For all we have learned since we left school, We are grateful.
For friendships new and friendships renewed, We give thanks.
For those who are absent tonight, We ask for their health and happiness.
For those who no longer part of this plane of existence, We honor their memory, and ask Your blessing on them.
With the bread we need for today, please feed us.
In the hurts we absorb from one another, please forgive us.
In times of temptation, please spare us.
From the grip of all that is evil, please free us.
For you are the glory of the power that is Love, Now and forever.
