Thanksgiving Prayers, Blessings & Bible Verses?

I would like this year that we start out all sitting down at the tables and we have a Thanksgiving Prayer or something to set the tone that it is Thanksgiving Day.

What is a good grace, prayer for blessing food on Thanksgiving? Any Bible Verses related to Thanksgiving?
I'd prefer something short that i can memorize within the hour ?
I'm actually thinking about writing the prayer in a bit of paper. Then ask all to close their eyes and read the prayer.

My family has a tradition of saying a Thanksgiving prayer somewhat like this.

Thank you, God, for this our food,
For work and play and all things good,
For wind and rain and sun above,
But most of all, for those we love. Amen

Thanksgiving Bible Verses

Psalm 31:19
How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.

Psalm 107:1
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."

Psalm 145:7
They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

Sometimes, instead of a prayer or a bible verse it's better to just say thanks for all the good things that came to your life, that you have food on the table, that you did not get sick, that you did not break any bones in your body, that all your love ones are with you.
