From The Jewish Progress, San Francisco, April 14, 1893
|“Father in heaven to Thee we pray,
Give us a good dinner every day,
Goose and turkey, sauce and cake,
That’s all we crave to take.
As to drinks, champagne and wine
Remember us our God divine.
Bless our children with all your grace
With ribbons, fringes and Brussels lace.
Our wives and daughters
Thou dost behold,
Give them diamonds and all the gold.
Give peace and plenty all over the land
Oh, Thou, who causes the flowers to bloom
