We thank Thee that we have a part as citizens of this great commonwealth, and we thank Thee for all the benefits that have come to us in our social and moral life. We thank Thee for all the great standards of truth and right that have been fought by those of our fellowmen. We thank Thee, this morning, Oh God, for those who founded this nation upon the provisions of right and truth. We thank Thee that thou hast ever guided us, and even though at times thrown amid the great calamity of war, Thou has always led us out to higher ideals. We ask Thee to guide us and we pray that Thy benediction may rest upon this legislature and this House of Representatives.
