bless our nation
and make it true
to the ideas of freedom and justice
and brotherhood for all who make it great.
Guard us from more wars,
from fire and wind,
from compromise, fear, confusion.
Be close to our leaders;
give them vision and courage,
as they ponder decisions affecting peace
and the future of the world.
Make me more deeply aware of my heritage;
realizing not only my rights
but also my duties
and responsibilities as a citizen.
Make this great land
and all its people
know clearly Your will,
that they may fulfill
the destiny ordained for us
in the salvation of the nations,
and the restoring of all things in Christ.
