July 4 Benediction

God bless America, we sing.
But also, we say,
Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord
Let us go forth this day placing the second first,
making God our Sovereign in all things;
and let our prayers for blessing
be upon all people, not just ourselves,
for we are sent forth not in the name of our country,
but in the Name of God:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
