The Penicuik Grace

The following is a grace composed for Penicuik Rugby Club's 85th Anniversary Dinner. Several people asked me for the words so I have put them here for others to share. Your attention is drawn to the important licensing terms and conditions below the text..

Gentlemen,

Please join me in giving thanks to whichever God is important to you
For the opportunities, the camararderie and the sheer unadulterated enjoyment that you and I have had from sport in general and from rugby in particular
Let us pray for the sense to know that what goes on tour stays on tour
And the wisdom to realise that that does not always mean that anything goes
And ask for the strength to make it through this evening's entertainment without damaging our reputations
And the courage to face tomorrow morning with fortitude and in defiance of the inevitable blinding headache.

Amen.
