Transcription

[underlined] A Prayer [/underlined]
Lord, safely guide the men who fly,
Victoriously across the sky
Protect them where so ‘ere they land.
And keep them in thy mighty hand.
There [sic] courage will immortal be.
And through the passing years well [sic] see
There [sic] names in sacred ink be penned
In every country they defend.
Though grey may be the clouds they ride,
Keep them forever at thy side,
And at the end in Heaven they’ll bear,
The glorious name of heroes – of the air.
