Graces At The Globe Tavern

Before Dinner

O Lord, when hunger pinches sore,
Do thou stand us in stead,
And send us from thy bounteous store,
A tup or wether-head!


After Dinner

O Lord, since we have feasted thus,
Which we so little merit,
Let Meg now take away the flesh,
And Jock bring in the spirit!


Lord, we [thee] thank an' thee adore
For temp'ral gifts we little merit;
At present we will ask no more,
Let William Hislop give the spirit.
