Grant, O Lord, on this election day
Wisdom to Thy children, that we may
Go forth to ballot boxes to choose men
who will lead us well. We come again
To the weighty hour when we delegate
Powers of decision. Nation, state,
the world, have many problems, and we would
Secure the highest and the utmost good.
With humility, with reverence, and respect
We exercise our duty- to elect
Men suited to this hour-and we ask
Divine and special guidance for our task.
