We begin with two graces for ‘Before’ and ‘After’ your meal and also the grace made famous world-wide by Robert Burns – ‘The Selkirk Grace’. Prior to its use by our National Bard it was known as ‘The Covenanter’s Grace’.


O Thou, who kindly dost provide
   For every creature’s want!
We bless Thee, God of Nature wide,
   For all Thy goodness lent:
And, if it please Thee, Heav’nly Guide,
   May never worse be sent;
But, whether granted, or deny’d,
   Lord, bless us with content! – Amen.


O Thou, in whom we live and move,
   Who mad’st the sea and shore;
Thy goodness constantly we prove,
   And, grateful, would adore. 

And if it please Thee, Pow’r above,
   Still grant us, with such store,
The friend we trust, the fair we love,
   And we desire no more.


Some hae meat, and canna eat,
   And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat and we can eat,
   And sae the Lord be thanket.
