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! Amen. 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! Amen. 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. Amen.
