For Our Country.

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our
heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always
prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and
glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable
industry, sound learning, and pure manners. 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 hither 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 justice and peace at home, and that,
through obedience to thy law, we may show forth 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; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
