(Prayer-Psalm: a hymn for the nation in the wake of 911.)© Walterrean Salley
Almighty Deliverer, save our nation—
The land that you have given us.
The heritage of our fathers,
Founded upon a godly trust.
Our banner waves against the sky,
Stars and stripes flying high.
Though storm clouds rage,
The hope of the ages
Will ever be our Light—
To go before and guide the way
That we shall not fear the night.
