|The Freebooters Prayer|
|THOU That willed us naked-born,|
|Send us meat against the morn|
|Got with right or got with wrong|
|So we fast not overlong.|
|Prosper Snaffle, Spur and Spear!|| 5|
|Grant us booty, horse and gear;|
|Save our necks from hempen thrall,|
|Bless the souls of them that fall.|
