Nelson's Prayer
May the great God whom I worship grant to my country and for the benefit of Europe in general a great and glorious victory and may no misconduct in any one tarnish it-and may humanity after victory be the predominant feature in the British fleet. For myself individually I commit my life to Him that made me and may His blessing alight on my endeavours for serving my country faithfully. To Him I resign myself and the just cause which it is entrusted to me to defend
Amen. Amen. Amen.
