Our Country

We live in a country whose beauty is great;

The mountains, lakes, rivers, with grandeur abound;

The flowers, trees, grasses, which God did create,

And the deserts and fields us with splendor surround.

We are thankful that we who inhabit this land

May have freedom to worship, to speak, and to write,

And we pray that our lives as examples may stand

For our neighbors; reflecting in our lives, Christ’s light.

So lift up a prayer that our rulers may be

Used of our God, in His infinite love,

To rule us in wisdom, so to fit you and me

For the time we’re transferred to the kingdom above.
