PS.136:1  O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Ps.136:25a  Who giveth food to all flesh:
Ps.147:9  He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
Ps.147:10  He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
Ps.147:11  The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

We thank you, Lord God, heavenly Father,
Through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, our Lord,
For all your gifts and blessings,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
