Lord,give us the eyes of the Hawk to truly see
Danger from outside forces
and from within.
To our youth also bestow the gift of
Vision to recognize the falseness of
Illusions that tempt them into
Keep them safe and strong and prepared
To accept the torch we pass on to
Them who are our future and posterity.
Give our nation the protection to
Preserve the legacy of our forefathers
And if fight we must to
Secure Liberty, give our warriors
The heart of the Wolf,
Relentless in the fight
And steadfast in its resolve.
Give comfort to those on the battlefields,
May they have strong comrades at their side
The strength that will sustain them
your presence in their souls
And the blessings they need to emerge victorious.
Give our country the spirit of the Eagle
So it will rise above corruption
And spread its wings
Across the winds if hope and freedom.
Above all, grant us grace,
For it is that which preserves and sustains,
That which protects and endures,
And that which is everlasting.
We, the people of America unite our
prayers to you in earnest and humility,
Lock your arms around us, Lord,
And keep our nation safe and free.
