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.
