Give us grateful hearts, O Lord, for this new day, for work to do and strength with which to do it. We thank You for the State we serve, for its government. Keep us gratefully reminded of those at another time who have gone before us with eloquent speech, statesmanship skills, and patriotic devotion to light up the way for subsequent generations, establishing the pattern of work and creating the procedures for this body.
