Prayer Of A Sportsman

In the battle that goes on through life,

I ask only for a field that is fair,

A chance that is equal with all in the strife,

A courage to strive and dare;

And if I should win, let it be by the code

With my faith and honor held high;

And if I should lose, let me stand by the side of the road,

And cheer as the winners go by.

May my shouts be ungrudging and clear,

A tribute that comes from the heart,

And let me not cherish a snarl or sneer,

Or play any sniveling part;

Let me say,”There they ride, on whom victories bestowed

Since they played the game better than I.”

And let me stand by the side of the road,

And cheer as the winners go by.

So grant me to conquer, if conquer I can,

By proving my worth in the fray,

But teach me to lose like a regular man,

Not like a craven, I pray.

Let me take my hat off to warriors who strode

To victory, splendid and high,

Yea, teach me to stand by the side of the road,

And cheer as the winners go by.
