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!
O Lord, we do thee humbly thank
For that we little merit:
Now Jean may take the flesh away,
And Will 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.
