Lord, we thank you for this beautiful country, with its abundance and its great diversity of people.
From all parts of the world they have come to become “Americans” . . . it doesn’t matter their nationality, their race, nor their religion . . . They came because they loved the hope that was held out by American democracy and freedom.
We thank you, Lord, for this great mixture of people who have forged a country to be proud of – – a county that has done so very much to help our world.
