The People’s Prayer

I found this poem written many years ago and thought of how our country needs it today.

The People’s Prayer

“God bless our dear United States,
Preserve the land from evil faces,
Lift high her banner fair and free,
And guard her bounds from sea to sea.

From foe without and foe within,
From open  shame and hidden sin,
From boastful pride and greedy store,
God keep our nation evermore.

Forever may her friendly hands
Receive the poor of other lands,
In kindliness of sisterhood,
And fill their arms with ample good.

Assailed by battle hosts of wrong,
God help our country to be strong.
Assailed by falsehoods’s crafty crew
God help our country to be true.

God hold the nation’s aim sincere,
God save her heart from coward fear,
God prosper her in true success.
And crown her head with worthiness.

God bless our dear United States,
Preserve the land from evil fates
Lift high her banner fair and free,
And ever guard her liberty.”
