MTC - Camp MinsiArticlesThe Scout Camp Graces

Scout Camp Graces

A Scout is reverent. Here are the mealtime graces used at Camp Minsi.

At Camp Minsi we sing our graces - before each meal Scouts join together as a camp to give thanks for the meal they are about to enjoy. The words can be found hanging throughout the Camp Minsi dining hall. Here are the words to the three standard Scout camp graces sung at Camp Minsi.


Gracious giver of all good,
Thee we thank for rest and food.
Grant that all we do or say,
In thy service be this day.


Father for this noonday meal,
We would speak the praise we feel.
Health and strength we have from thee,
Help us Lord to friendly be.


Tireless Guardian on our way,
Thou has kept us well this day.
While we thank thee we request,
Care continued pardon rest.
