Rub a dub dub, Lord
Thanks for the grub
Old, but a classic:
Bless us now O Lord divine,
who first turned water into wine.
Have mercy on these foolish men,
about to turn it back again.
Dear Lord Why Should we thank you,
We paid for all the food!!!
2, 4, 6, 8,
Or for the really pretentious Subbie: "Benedictus, benedictum" (Goes down well if you've got a RC CO!

Lord who blessed the loaves and fishes, bless the food upon our dishes.
Bless the cooks and those who serve us.
And from indigestion, Lord preserve us.
Matthew, Mark, Luke & John
Bless this table, the food hereon.
Lord, pray now let us get on
Lads, do not stop till food is gone.
Keep it simple - I use:
From Al Amarah way up north
To Muthana in the West
From Shaibah log base where there's beer
We rally by request
O Oft across this land o Lord
We are so thinly spread
Now gather here in Div HQ
God bless our Daily Bread
