Grace Before Meals

I've been meaning to brush up on my Latin; specifically Grace before meals, which is something the kids can learn too. Sometimes we do "Bless us O Lord" and for the Littles we do "God is Great". Now we can do it in Latin, too.
BENEDIC, Domine, nos et haec tua dona quae de tua largitate sumus sumpturi. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

BLESS us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

And the Blessing after meals:
AGIMUS tibi gratias, omnipotens Deus, pro universis beneficiis tuis, qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

WE give Thee thanks, almighty God, for all Thy benefits, who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
