Superman Grace

At #worship2013 conference organised by the liturgical commission. As the conversation has developed, the word ‘trite’ has been used extensively. I put “I’d better not mention the Superman grace”. Twitter has demanded the Superman grace. I’m putting together a video that goes with it for the summer school I’m running to check that our later.

From 45 seconds in.

We thank you Lord for giving us food.
We thank you Lord for giving us food.
Lord we praise you.
Lord we praise you.
O we praise you Lord…
For giving us food.

Thanks to the Church of England’s head communication’s officer Arun Arora who taught me this at college. All of the trite primary school kids I meet love singing this tritely.

[edit]

Just had someone else on twitter post it as:

We thank you Lord for giving us food.
We thank you Lord for giving us food.
We’re very grateful
For every plateful
O we thank you Lord…
For giving us food.

Prefer this version. Consider me newly crowd sourced.

Thanks @danadelap

    • Somehow you ended up in spam….

      I’m up for a Nandos based exhibition of theological silliness. We should invite Kate Bottley and 100 other people!

  2. Ah, I remember this!!! Good times on Christian summer camps as a teen, with whole dining rooms doing the arms (don’t tell me you don’t know the actions?! I will have to teach you…)

    The version I used was different for lines 3&4 though:

    Thank you Lord for giving us food
    Thank you Lord for giving us food
    For daily brea-ed
    For daily brea-ed
    Thank you LORD – for giving us food.

    Do you know the Crumble Song to the tune of Land of Hope and Glory? (Just me then…)

  3. Keep ’em coming!!
