    Blessing on the Bread

    O God, the Eternal Father,
    we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ,
    to bless and sanctify this bread
    to the souls of all those who partake of it,
    that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son,
    and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father,
    that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son,
    and always remember him
    and keep his commandments which he has given them;
    that they may always have his Spirit to be with them.
    Amen.
