Another Grace for a Child

Robert Herrick, Hesperides (London: for John Williams and F. Eglesfield to be sold by Thomas Hunt, 1648), of which a section called "His Noble Numbers: or, his Pious Pieces" has a separate title-page dated 1647. Facs. edn. Menston: Scolar, 1969. PR 3512 H4 1648A ROBA
1Here a little child I stand
2Heaving up my either hand;
4Here I lift them up to Thee,
5For a benison to fall
6On our meat, and on us all. Amen.
