A western adventure old-time radio drama, premiered on July 8, 1950, on the US NBC radio network and remained on the air through
September 14, 1952. Movie star Joel McCrea starred as Texas Ranger Jayce Pearson, who used the latest scientific techniques to identify the
criminals and his faithful horse, Charcoal, to track them down. The shows were reenactments of actual Texas Ranger cases.

The series was produced by Screen Gems and directed by Stacy Keach, Sr., and was sponsored for part of its run by Wheaties.

Captain Manuel T. "Lone Wolf" Gonzaullas, a Ranger for 30 years and who was said to have killed 31 men during his career, served as consultant
for the series.
Texas Ranger’s Prayer
Capt. Pierre Bernard Hill
Chaplin of the Texas Rangers


Oh God, Who’s end is justice,
Who’s strength is all our stay.
Be near and bless my mission
As I go forth today.

Let wisdom guide my actions
Let courage fill my heart
And help me Lord in every hour
To do a Rangers part.

Protect when danger threatens
Sustain when trails are rough.
Help me to keep my standard high
And smile at each rebuff.

When night comes down upon me
I pray thee Lord be nigh.
Whither on lonely scout
Or camped under the Texas sky.

Keep me, oh God in life
And when my day shall end
Forgive my sins and take me in.
For Jesus sake.

Amen
