The Commando Prayer

(click/touch the image for full resolution.)​

The Prayer for Generosity by St Ignatius of Loyola was one of the Prayers used by the Special Service Group as an Act of Dedication, and published in the form of a small folded document which was then provided to Commandos.  

The Commando Prayer

Teach us, Good Lord 
To serve Thee as Thou deservest 
To give and not to count the cost 
To fight and not to heed the wounds 
To toil and not to seek for rest 
To labour and not to ask for any reward 
Save that of knowing that we do Thy Holy will 
Through the same Jesus Christ Our Lord, Amen
