Choice of Graces

Here is a wonderful lesson in perspectives.

Selkirk Grace – Robbie Burns

Some hae meat, and canna eat,

And some wud eat that want it.

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

And say the Lord be thankit!

Church of England

Oh Lord, grant we may not be like

Porridge; stiff, stodgy and hard to

Stir, but like cornflakes –

Light, crisp and ready to serve.

Church of Scotland           

Oh Lord, grant we may not be like

Cornflakes; lightweight, empty and cold

But like porridge –

Warm, comforting and full of natural goodness.
