225 The Ranger’s Prayer O God, whose end is justice, Whose strength is all our stay, Be near and bless my mission As I go forth today. Let wisdom guide my actions, Let courage fill me heart And help me, Lord, in every hour To do a Ranger’s part. Protect when danger threatens, Sustain when trails are rough; Help me to keep my standard high And smile at each rebuff. When night comes down upon me, I pray thee, Lord, be nigh, Whether on lonely scout, or camped, Under the Texas sky. Keep me, O God, in life And when my days shall end, Forgive my sins and take me in, For Jesus’ sake, Amen. P. B.
