In the Battle . . .

Knute Rockne
Winning Words of Champions, p. 25


Dear Lord:

In the Battle that goes on for life,
I ask for a field that is fair,
a Chance that is equal in strife,
the Courage to do and dare.

If I should win,
let it be by the Code,
my faith and my honor
held very high.

If I should lose,
let me stand by the road and cheer
as the winners ride by.
