Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
Grace

fem. proper name, literally "favor, grace;" see grace (n.).

grace

late 12c., "God's favor or help," from Old French grace "pardon, divine grace, mercy; favor, thanks; elegance, virtue" (12c.), from Latin gratia "favor, esteem, regard; pleasing quality, good will, gratitude" (source of Italian grazia, Spanish gracia), from gratus "pleasing, agreeable," from PIE root *gwere- (3) "to favor" (cognates: Sanskrit grnati "sings, praises, announces," Lithuanian giriu "to praise, celebrate," Avestan gar- "to praise").\n

\nSense of "virtue" is early 14c., that of "beauty of form or movement, pleasing quality" is mid-14c. In classical sense, "one of the three sister goddesses (Latin Gratiæ, Greek Kharites), bestowers of beauty and charm," it is first recorded in English 1579 in Spenser. The short prayer that is said before or after a meal (early 13c.; until 16c. usually graces) has a sense of "gratitude."

grace

c.1200, "to thank," from Old French gracier, from grace (see grace (n.)). Meaning "to show favor" (mid-15c.) led to that of "to lend or add grace to something" (1580s, as in grace us with your presence), which is the root of the musical sense in grace notes (1650s). Related: Graced; gracing.

Grace (Jeff Buckley song)

"Grace" is the title track from Jeff Buckley's first album Grace (1994). It was the album's first single, and was also released as a video.

The song was based on an instrumental song called "Rise Up to Be" written by Buckley's collaborator, Gary Lucas. Jeff wrote lyrics inspired by his saying goodbye to his girlfriend at the airport on a rainy day, and the vocal melody came naturally. In Buckley's words, "It's about not feeling so bad about your own mortality when you have true love."

Buckley invited Lucas to play on the album, along with " Mojo Pin"; two songs that Lucas had created the main riffs for, and Buckley had expanded upon, making up the "Grace" heard on the album, and earlier on Songs to No One 1991–1992; these songs were prominent in gigs around 1991 onwards.

Grace (prayer)

A grace is a short prayer or thankful phrase said before or after eating. The term most commonly refers to Christian traditions. Some traditions hold that grace and thanksgiving imparts a blessing which sanctifies the meal. In English, reciting such a prayer is sometimes referred to as "saying grace".

A prayer of Grace is said by the head of the house although an honored guest may be asked to say Grace by prior arrangement. Under no circumstances should someone spontaneously say Grace, especially a guest, as it would be considered disrespectful. This is similar to the etiquette of a dinner party toast, in which the host is expected to give the toast. The prayer of Grace is often said to be an act of offering thanks to God for granting humans dominion over the earth, and the right and ability to sacrifice the lives of divine creations for sustenance; this thanks is the "saying of Grace" prior to eating of every meal.

No, not that kind! They're really sweet children. Kids in the studio just add to the right atmosphere. You can do great jams with them. That's how "Grace" developed. One of these girls always carried a small money box around. 'Save The Money For The Children', it says. One day, Danny came in drunk and started rambling on a piano, shouting all kinds of weird lyrics. So we used the line from the money box and thought: that will do for a B-side. But once we started recording it for real, it became better and better and it's even our new single now! Yeah, things can go truly odd."

The ship was in sight of Simmon's Bay at the time the fire was discovered and while five men stayed on board to fight the fire, douse the hatches and keep them sealed, the remaining passengers and crew stood off in a longboat, towed behind the Grace. However, the crew were unable to keep the fire under control and on nearing Struys Bay the ship burst into flames. The remaining crew were taken on the longboat and the tow was cut. The ship went to ground and burnt down to the water line. The passengers and crew made to shore without harm and six days later made it overland to Cape Town. While most of the mail was lost, dispatches from Governor Macquarie were saved and for doing so, Captain Lethbridge was awarded at Bridgeman, near Singleton when he settled in New South Wales in 1825.
