Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations yet unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land, especially those serving in our armed forces, may have the grace to maintain these liberties, being protected under Your great might and guidance, in order that our land will continue to be blessed by the light of freedom. Help each of us to serve You in righteousness, and ultimately in peace and in safety, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Our fathers’ God to thee, author of liberty, to thee we sing. Long may our land be bright, with freedom’s holy light. Protect us by Thy might, great God our King. Amen.
