Blog-a-Book: A different kind of grace

Prayinghands Here, a little child, I stand,
Heaving up my either hand;
Cold as paddocks though they be,
Here I lift them up to thee,
For a benison to fall
On our meat and on our all.

--Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

Wikipedia tells us that paddocks, in this context, is another word for toads. Nowadays it might be considered a bit unusual to teach your child to pray, "Dear Lord, I lift my toad-like hands to you . . ." But you've got to admit, at least it's a bit of a change from the standard "God is great, God is good . . ."
