Lord Horatio Nelsons Prayer

1st October 1805

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

who made me and may His blessing light upon my

endeavours for serving my Country faithfully.

To Him I resign myself and the just cause which is

entrusted to me to defend.
