Show America the right; Let not ambition, hate, or greed Cause us to direct our powerful might, In ways with which Thou art not agreed. No man, no land can long endure Who in thy love is not secure. Fill our leaders hearts with undy- ing Faith; Teach them what is best for all mankind. ! Love thy neighbor, Thy word salth, I Direct us now we lest be blind. [Should we lease-lend? Should we 1 appease ? ]Should we send our boys across the seas ? Our hearts go out to those op- pressed, Show us our line of duty now; Not lust, not hate, but at thy be- heat, That right shall triumph be our vow; There's only one way a victorys won, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done. Our way of life seems best to us-- Liberty, freedom, to man is dear; Guide our steps that out of chaos Thy plan be spread far and near In the Holy Name of the Prince of Light; Oh, God!
