A Programmer's Prayer

Our Pastey, who art in Manc,
Grant us thine wisdom
Forgive us our syntax errors
So as we forgive undocumented requirements
Lead us not into endless loops
And save us from undeclared variables
Deliver us from fence-post errors
Give us this day some sensible comments
Let thine error messages be coherent
Grant us successful compilations
Thy Code be Executed
On servers as on clients
Monks singing in front of a church
