A Rifleman's Prayer

Dear God, my Father, through Thy Son
Hear the prayer of a warrior son.

Give my eyes a vision keen
To see the thing that must be seen.

A steady hand I ask of Thee
The feel of wind on land or sea.

Let me not ever careless be
Of life or limb or liberty.

For Justice sake a quiet heart
And grace and strength to do my part.

To God and Country, Home and Corps
Let me be faithful evermore.


Return to Marine Corps stuff.
