On Labor Day

On Labor Day
God thank you for the diversity
That has graced our lands
We have hailed from Europe,
Asia, Africa, and Latin America

Divine Essence we have evolved
As hunter-gatherers
To farmers, builders,
Educators, warriors, and peacemakers
But behind it all was your guidance

We have developed as loving fathers and mothers
Raised families in communities
And build nations
But it was by your grace
That your gifts have shaped our destiny

Eternal Spirit we are a nation
That has been shaped by your blessings
As Jews, Christians, Muslims,
Hindus, Taoists, and atheists
But still we are citizens
Not only of America, but the world

“Divine Essence, let your freedom reign as we undertake our mission.  Guide and bless us that we uphold our interdependence in society, striving to live, and work in peace.”
