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