A Grace before Dinner

by Robert Burns, 1791

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, Heavenly Guide,
  May never worse be sent;
But, whether granted, or denied,
  Lord, bless us with content. Amen!
