Heavenly Father, we ask You to bless these hounds of [hunt name].
Enable them to lead us across the countryside, and through the woods which you have created in pursuit of the fox, one of Your most cunning creatures.
This is the purpose for the creation of the foxhound.
May these hounds fulfill their destiny through Your guidance.
May their voices give testimony to Your greatness, and may their ability to find and track the fox sharpen as the season progresses.
Through the intercession of Saint Hubert, the patron saint of the hunt, we ask You to bless these hounds.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
