A Hurler’s Prayer
Grant me, O Lord a hurler’s skill,
with strength of arm and speed of limb
Unerring eye for the flying ball
and courage to match whate’er befall
May my stroke be steady and my aim be true,
My actions manly and my misses few.
No matter what way the game may go,
May I rest in friendship with every foe.
When the final whistle for me has blown
And I stand at last before God’s judgement throne,
May the great referee when he calls my name
Say, you hurled like a man; you played the game
