Pilot's Prayer

My very good friend, Stephanie S., sent me this prayer. I had never seen it before.

Lord of sea and earth and air,
Listen to the pilots prayer-
Send him wind that's steady and strong
Grant that his engine sing 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, full control,
That he may learn the heights of heaven
The rapture altitude has given,
That he may know the joy they feel
Who hide Thy realms on birds of steel
- Cecil Roberts
