A Grace after Dinner

by Robert Burns, 1791

O thou, in whom we live and move—
  Who made the sea and shore;
Thy goodness constantly we prove,
  And grateful would adore;
And, if it please Thee, Power above!
  Still grant us, with such store,
The friend we trust, the fair we love—
  And we desire no more. Amen!
