|O though great governor and parent|
O though great governor and parent of universal nature (God)|
who manifestest thy glory to the blessed
inhabitants of heaven--may all thy rational creatures in all the parts
of thy boundless dominion be happy in the knowledge
of thy existence and providence, and celebrate thy perfections
in a manner most worthy of thy nature and perfective of thier own!
May the glory of thy moral development be advanced
and the great laws of it be more generally obeyed.
May the inhabitants of this world pay
as cheerful a submission and as constant an obedience
to Thy will, as the happy spirits do in the regions of immortality.
