James Roberts (21 October 1981 / Saginaw, Michigan)
May God show kindness and bless us,
and make His face smile on us!
For then the earth will acknowledge Your ways
and all the nations will know of Your power to save.
Let the nations praise You, O God,
let all the nations praise You!
Let the nations shout for joy,
since You dispense true justice to the world;
You dispense strict justice to the peoples,
on earth You rule the nations.
Let the nations praise You, God,
let the nations praise You!
The soil has given its harvest,
God, our God, has blessed us.
May God bless us, and let Him be feared
to the very ends of the earth.
