LYRIC
O benedictus Deus meus, Deus meus, qui docet manus meas ad proelium
O benedictus Deus meus qui docet digitos meus ad bellum
Fulgora coruscationem peccatoribus et dissipabis eos
et in misericoridia tua disperdes inimicos meos
Eripe me et libera me de astris multis et pericli multis
O benedictus Deus meus, qui docet manus meas ad proelium
O benedictus Deus meus. Deus meus in te confido
Eripe me et libera me de manu advorsarum alienigenum
Servo Terrae
Amen

Translation:
O Blessed be my God, my God who teacheth my hands to war
O Blessed be my God, who teacheth my fingers to battle
Send forth lightning on sinners and scatter them
and in thy mercy thou wilt destroy my enemies
Rescue me and deliver me from many stars and many perils
O Blessed be my God, my God who teacheth my hands to war
O Blessed be my God. My God, in you I put my trust
Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of alien adversaries
Watch over and protect the Earth
Amen
Deus Meus - The Spartan Battle Prayer



I wrote “Deus Meus: The Spartan Battle Prayer” in the winter of 2005 after seeing photographs of Allied soldiers praying together before going into combat in World War II.  It occurred to me that surely in the Halo universe there would be UNSC troops that would do the same.    

The lyrics are based on Psalm 143(144):  “...benedictus Dominus Deus meus qui docet manus meas ad proelium digitos meos ad bellum - Blessed be the Lord my strength, who teaches my hands to war, and my fingers to fight...” (King James Translation)
