Prayer For A Pilot

      
_Prayer For A Pilot_
Cecil Roberts

Lord of Sea and Earth and Air,
Listen to the Pilot's prayer-
Send him wind that's steady and strong,
Grant that his engine sings the song
Of flawless tone, by which he knows
It shall not fail him where he goes;
Landing, gliding, in curve, half-roll-
Grant him, O Lord, a full control,
That he may learn in heights of Heaven
The rapture altitude has given,
That he shall know the joy they feel
Who ride Thy realms on Birds of Steel
