Almighty God, who has given us this
Good land for our heritage, we humbly
Beseech Thee that we may always
Prove ourselves a people mindful of
Thy favor and be glad to do Thy will.
Bless our land with honorable
Industry, sound learning and
Save us from violence, discord, and
Confusion, from pride and arrogancy
And from every evil way.
Defend our liberties and fashion
Into one united people the multitudes
Brought out of many Kindreds and tongues.
Endue with the spirit of wisdom those
To whom in Thy name we entrust the
Authority of government, that there
May be peace and justice at home,
That through obedience to Thy
Law, we may show for Thy praise
Among the nations of the earth.
In the time of prosperity, fill our
Hearts with thankfulness,
And in the day of trouble suffer not
Our trust in Thee to fail.
