Forgive, O God, those national sins which so easily beset us: our wanton waste of soil and air and water; our desecration of natural beau ty; our heedlessness of those who come after us, if only we be served; our lust for money; our contempt for what is small and worship of what is big. For wrongs done to our land, our people, our heritage, and our future, as well as for things left undone, forgive us, O God.
