For Joy and Gladness

Blessed are you, O Lord,
for you have nourished me from my youth
and you give food to all flesh.
Fill our hearts with joy and gladness
that we always have sufficiency in all things,
and may abound to every good work
in Christ Jesus our Lord;
through him be glory to you,
honor, might, majesty, and dominion,
forever and ever. Amen.
