God of eagles, God of sparrows,
soaring spirit, earthly guide,
help our nation know true greatness,
free from all-consuming pride.
Strengthen us for global duties
sharing progress that is just;
like the eagle may we venture,
life the sparrow may we trust.
God of valleys, God of mountains,
comrade in our depths and heights,
speak through all our civic leader
who would nurture human rights.
May they know your daily presence
and affirm your ageless deeds;
through dark valleys may they follow,
up steep mountains where love leads.
God in victory, God in failure,
steadfast through each tribal test,
save us from our shabby idols,
show us that your way is best.
Better than the lure of power,
better than the lust for fame;
so in failure may we praise you,
and in victory bless your name.
