Haunt

12/02/2009

God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far along the way,
Thou who has by Thy might led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray,
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee.

Shadowed beneath thy hand may we forever stand
True to Thee, O God, and true to our native land.

– Dr Joseph Lowery, Inauguration Benediction 2009
