lunch prayer

Does anyone have a short lunch-time prayer/grace to say with the class? I will be teaching grade 3 at a Christian-minded school, and can only think of "Johnny Appleseed". Pease help!

Come Lord Jesus be our guest.
Let this food to us be blessed.
In Jesus name we thank you. Amen.

For the food we eat, thank you Lord.
For the cook so sweet, thank you Lord.
For the friends we've made, thank you Lord.
Oh Lord, thank you Lord.
(Sing to the tune of Kumbaya)

We thank you for our food oh Lord.
Our mom and dad too oh Lord.
We thank you for our food oh Lord.
To get us through the day.
Amen (snap, snap) Amen (snap, snap)
Amen Amen Amen (snap, snap)
(Sung to the tune of the Addams Family)

My savior has a first name is J-E-S-U-S
He died for all of us because he L-O-V-E-S
I want to thank him when I pray
And that is why I have to say
that G-O-D is super great so thank him for the food we ate.
(Sung to the tune of Oscar Mayer)

This is the on eI used to say every day in school when I was younger. It's not very catchy for young kids but it's short.

Bless us, Oh Lord,
and these thy gifts which
we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.

Way down south in Dixie!
Was PreK SPE, now HS SPE.
Tasha's is the one I was going to suggest. I grew up with that one but worded a little different on the 2nd line "Let us thank Him for our food".

This is one sung to the tune of "Rock Around The CLock" (not the intro part one, two, three o'clock, 4 o'clock rock....but the melody) by Bill Haley and the Comets:

God is great
God is good
And we thank Him for our food
Gonna thank Him in the morning
Noon and night,
We're gonna thank our God
'Cause He's Outta Sight!
Gonna thank our God 'cause he is good to me!

This is the second verse to Johnny Appleseed, in case you don't have it:
I wake up every day
As happy as can be
Because I know the Lord is there
Watchin' over all my friends and me
The Lord is good to me...
amen, amen, amen, amen amen...
Praise the Lord
