On this day of rejoicing and celebrating the birth of our nation
Please lay you hand of love and light on the shoulders of the growing number
Of discontented men and women with minds full of hate and anger
Instigated by an evil one.
Let them see and feel the blessings of a lightened heart
Where love dwells for their neighbors, no matter how far away
Let their weight of hatred be lifted, changed to kindness and compassion
For those who are different from themselves
May you shine your love and light upon the many who lack the ability
To open their eyes to see the joy of loving and forgiving
Let them bond with those leaders who walk with truth and goodness
Divine Spirit, help our country and all who dwell on our land.
