Almighty God, Come Bless America
From sea to shining sea;
Keep us mindful of humility
—–When pride is all we see.
Let us daily seek the face of God
Keep us on our knees in prayer;
Help us turn our hearts from wickedness
—-And unselfishly do our share.
Save us too from violence and discord
Give us peace and justice for all.
Fill our hearts and minds with thankkfulness
—Keep us standing strong and tall.
Grant our national wounds now healing
As on your gracious name we call—
For thine is the Kingdom, Power and Glory
We together pray for America, one and all.
