  • And now it's my privilege to introduce the

  • Reverend Dr. Joseph E. Lowery

  • to deliver the Benidiction.

  • God of our weary years,

  • God of our silent tears,

  • Thou, who has brought us thus far along the way,

  • Thou, who has by Thy might led us into the light,,

  • Keep us forever in the path, we pray,

  • Lest our feet

  • stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,

  • Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world,

  • we forget thee.

  • Shadowed beneath thy hand,

  • May we forever stand

  • True to thee, oh God, and True to our native land.

  • We truly give thanks for the glorious experience

  • we've shared this day.

  • We pray now, oh Lord, for your blessing upon thy servant

  • Barack Obama, the 44th president of these United States,

  • his family and his administration.

  • He has come to this high office

  • at a low moment in the national, and

  • indeed the global, fiscal climate.

  • But because we know youve got

  • the whole world in your hands,

  • we pray for not only our nation,

  • but for the community of nations.

  • Our faith does not shrink,

  • though pressed by the flood of mortal ills.

  • For we know that, Lord, you are able

  • and youre willing to work through faithful leadership

  • to restore stability,

  • mend our brokenness, heal our wounds,

  • and deliver us from the exploitation of the poor,

  • of the least of these,

  • and from favoritism toward the rich, the elite of these.

  • We thank you for the empowering of thy servant,

  • our 44th president, to inspire our nation to believe that

  • yes, we can work together to achieve a more perfect union.

  • And while we have sown the seeds of greed - the wind

  • of greed and corruption

  • - and even as we reap the whirlwind of social and economic

  • disruption, we seek forgiveness

  • and we come in a spirit of unity and solidarity

  • to commit our support to our president

  • by our willingness to make sacrifices,

  • to respect your creation,

  • to turn to each other and not on each other.

  • And now, Lord, in the complex arena of human relations,

  • help us to make choices on the side of love, not hate;

  • on the side of inclusion, not exclusion;

  • tolerance, not intolerance.

  • And as we leave this mountain top,

  • help us to hold on to the spirit of fellowship

  • and the oneness of our family.

  • Let us take that power back to our homes,

  • our workplaces, our churches, our temples, our mosques

  • or wherever we seek your will.

  • Bless President Barack, First Lady Michelle.

  • Look over our little angelics Sasha and Malia.

  • We go now to walk together children,

  • pledging that we won’t get weary

  • in the difficult days ahead.

  • We know you will not leave us alone.

  • With your hands of power and your heart of love,

  • help us then, now, Lord, to work for that day

  • when nations shall not lift up sword against nation,

  • when tanks will be beaten into tractors,

  • when every man and every woman

  • shall sit under his or her own vine and fig tree

  • and none shall be afraid,

  • when justice will roll down like waters

  • and righteousness as a mighty stream.

  • Lord, in the memory of all the saints who

  • from their labors rest

  • and in the joy of a new beginning,

  • we ask you to help us work for that day

  • when Black will not be asked to get in back,

  • when Brown can stick around, -- [laughter] --

  • when Yellow will be mellow, -- [laughter] --

  • when the Red man can get ahead, man; -- [laughter] --

  • and when White will embrace what is right.

  • Let all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen,

  • AUDIENCE: Amen!

  • REV. LOWERY: Say Amen --

  • AUDIENCE: Amen!

  • REV. LOWERY: And Amen.

  • AUDIENCE: Amen! [Cheers, applause]
