The hymn, “God of Our Fathers,” was written for the Centennial Fourth of July celebration in 1876 by Daniel C. Roberts. (Click on the title to read more about the hymn, and to listen to the tune at Cyberhymnal.)
I offer the last stanza as a prayer for our great nation.
Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way,
Lead us from night to never-ending day;
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
And glory, laud, and praise be ever Thine..
I ask this in the strong name of Jesus,
