The Freebooter’s Prayer
(Scotland, 1405)

Anonymous
 
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.
