Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.

    baue mir einen Sohn, o Herr, der stark genug sein wird, um zu wissen, wann er schwach ist, und mutig genug, sich selbst zu stellen, wenn er Angst hat, einer, der stolz und unbeugsam in ehrlicher Niederlage und demütig und sanft im Sieg sein wird.

    edificami un figlio, o signore, che sarà abbastanza forte da sapere quando è debole e abbastanza coraggioso da affrontare se stesso quando ha paura, uno che sarà orgoglioso e inflessibile nella sconfitta onesta e umile e gentile nella vittoria.

    filii aedificare mihi, domine, scire quis sit potentior quidem erat, cum sit infirma, et fortis se ipsum cum satis faciem timet, et exaltabitur cor unum et erunt in anulositas, idest flexibilitas honestam clade, et in humilitate et mansuetudine cum victoria.
