My happy discovery of the day is prayers in French including grace before meals sung to Frere Jacques
A la table, à la table,
venez tous, venez tous !
Et que Dieu bénisse,
et que Dieu bénisse ce repas.
Ode to Joy
Dieu dont la main nous procure notre pain de chaque jour
Bénissez la nourriture que nous donne votre amour.
and When the Saints go Marching in
Pour ce repas, pour toute joie,
Nous vous remercions Seigneur,
Acceptez Père, cette prière, de reconnaissance et d'amour!
which I can't make scan nohow.
