                             A BOWHUNTER'S PRAYER TO DIANA
                           Oh Silvery Huntress of the Night!
                             Diana of the pale moonlight!
                             Oh Goddess of the Silver Bow
                           Smile on your humble child, below
                            Come now to me and be my guest,
                          And aid me in this quest!
                            In this endeavor, grant success
                          Grant me patience - grant kindness
                          Watch over me and guide my steps -
                          As I walk into the forest's depths.
                              Protect me from all injury
                            And close beside me, always be.
                              Aid me as I track the deer
                       Through brush and thickets, far and near
                           When it comes time to draw my bow
                             Grant me accuracy, here below
                         Guide my arrows with speed and skill
                        Grant painless death and swiftest kill
                         Silvery Huntress, I am your child...
                          I hunt your forests, free and wild.
                            Bless this hunt, I ask of thee
                             Oh Great Diana, hear my plea
                          Goddess of Wild Ones and the Night!
                           Bless my table with food tonight!
