you have been a refuge for us
in every generation
as we conclude this convention
from the safety of our homes
we pray for a national home
abound for all its inhabitants.
our guardian who neither slumbers nor sleeps,
awaken us to the tireless task
of perfecting our home in this great land
built on foundations of freedom,
to number our days
that we may attain a heart of wisdom.
Strengthen us each day
in our sacred duty to promote leaders
who will transform crisis into hope,
challenge into opportunity,
cruelty into compassion,
and hate into love.
So may it be your will
and let us say: Amen.
