O God, wise Creator, Sustainer, and Guide
of planets, of nations, of continents wide:
we thank you for blessings your bounty bestowed
on lands that the poor chose for freedom's abode.
We thank you for prairies, for mountains, for seas,
for wealth of your grain, for the fruit of your trees.
We thank you, O God, for abundance to share
so no child may hunger, no mother despair.
With fruits of your Spirit in our wakened soul,
with fruits of your science revealing our goal,
with saints and with prophets to lead us your way,
we thank you, O God, for new visions today.
Upon this fair land, and upon every land,
may blessings be shared from your generous hand,
till nations and races proclaim you their Lord,
and Earth, your new Eden, shall banish the sword.
