Almighty Lord God,
You keep on giving abundance
to men in the dew of heaven,
and food out of the richness of the soil.
We give thanks to Your most gracious majesty
for the fruits of the field
which we have gathered.
We beg of You,
in Your mercy,
to bless our harvest,
which we have received from Your generosity.
and keep it from all harm.
that all those whose desires You
have filled with these good things
may be happy in Your protection.
May they praise Your mercies forever,
and make use of the good things
that do not last in such a way
that they may not lose those goods
that are everlasting,
through Christ our Lord.
