The 'Lords' Prayer

As the boys don glove and pad

Think about the games we've had

Captain Gale leading the team

As they go to chase the dream.

Early season, double tons,

Lyth and  Bairstow making runs.

Forget the injuries sustained

White ball games when it has rained

Remember sunshine, cheering a Patto wicket

Scarborough festival, the 'must have ticket'.

HRR doing what HRR does best

And never  forgetting all the rest.

And now with season end in sight

We are ready for the fight

Keeping  heads and hopes up high

One last push to reach for the sky.

Wear your White Rose over your heart

Every Yorkshireman!!, no man apart

Wear your Yorkshire Rose with pride

Back your team, back your 'side'

'For Yorkshire, boys' the rapturous cry

'For Gillespie' and his sad goodbye

'For the trophy' in our hands

'For Everyone' in the homeland

So as the boys don glove and pad

Think of all the games we've had

Whether at home or afar

Champions we forever are
