We vote for You, God

– not as a nominee
of one political party or another,
but as the Father-Mother
of this country and all
peoples everywhere.

When we struggle to discern
the way to go, You are there,
leading us into the prayers
to pray and words to say
through Your Word. Oh,
that we’ve heard You well!

Time will tell, but meanwhile,
we thank You for our nation
under Your care. We praise
You, Lord, and vote as we must,
knowing You Are The One
in Whom we trust.
