The Pilotís Prayer


Lord, as this plane is lifted high,

    From earthly bonds set free;

To penetrate the glorious sky,

   So is my prayer to thee.


Grand me judgment, first, I pray,

   To know just what to do;

Give me knowledge of the way;

              And grant me courage too.


I humbly ask you guard my hand,

    Upon the throttles there;

As I feed in the energy,

    That lifts us in the air.


Grant me confidence, Lord, and yet,

    As I strive to reach my goal;

I pray that I will not forget,

    That youíre the Captain of my Soul.
