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!" ~ A Grace Before Dinner Shown: A painting in oils on board by an unknown artist showing a scene with Burns in an Edinburgh Drawing Room. It is based on a similar painting by CM Hardie showing a literary gathering at the home of the Duchess of Gordon in 1787.
