God Bless America

 Father, we thank you for the bountiful blessings you have bestowed on us.

 Guide us in being good stewards of these gifts.

Let us care for all of your beautiful creation,

from the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters.

Make us instruments of your peace.

Help us to love and care for all of our neighbors –

locally and globally-

so that we might be truly crowned with brotherhood

from sea to shining sea.
