PRAYER FOR AMERICA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O lord of justice and of right
Last Line: Oh, make us great!
Subject(s): Patriotism; Prayer; United States; America

O LORD of justice and of right
Who made the generous Cause prevail,
Who helped our heroes win the fight,
Now let not their endeavor fail.
Facing new dangers that arise,
Oh, make us wise!

Draw out the best of each to serve
Unselfishly the common good,
Nor let the wider vision swerve
From the true goal of brotherhood.
To this, thy mighty-blended race,
Oh, give thy grace!

Give us great leaders we can trust
To strive for righteousness alone;
Cast small ambition in the dust,
With greed and malice overthrown.
Lord God, Preserver of the State,
Oh, make us great!
