Mealtime Blessings, Volume 3 of the HPLS siddur is arranged into
the following four parts:
Part 1, Grace after Meals. Introductory Psalm 137, which is said
on weekdays and never sung, is in two-column format (

is completely transliterated.
For the Sabbath and Festivals, the grace starts with introductory Psalm
126 (
Sheer HahMahAhloht). The Invitation to Grace is then recited,
followed by the four main blessings that make up the Grace after Meals.
Volume 3 has the complete grace after meals, including passages for
Chanukah, Purim, Rosh Chodesh (new moon), and all the Jewish
